Awards Addendum

You know the feeling. You no sooner tell a story when you learn more detail that you wish you had included at the onset. So, with that in mind, your humble correspondent would like to share some additional information from my last post:

Nancy DiDonato is shown here at the 24th Annual Northeast Quilts Unlimited Show, standing alongside her Best of Show quilt, "Square Dance in the Log Cabin". The color white you see in this quilt is the wall, for Nancy has created a circle in a square in a square. She is an engineering wizard, and yet, this was a traditional, log-cabin pattern.

Nancy also won a First place ribbon for "The Devil Made Me Do It', her stained glass quilt depicting the Garden of Eden.

Diane Evans won a Second place ribbon for "Pieces of Dreams" at the 24th Northeast Quilts Unlimited show, and it had also taken a 2nd place ribbon, Wall Quilts, Innovative at the 2009 AQS Expo in Des Moines, Iowa. Diane's quilt has also represented AQS on much of this year's 2010 promotional materials, including magazine ads and decks of playing cards available at the AQS shows.

And since our last post, judging at LARAC (Lower Adirondack Regional Arts Council) for the Black and White Juried Exhibition is complete with Joanna Monroe receiving an honorable mention for her quilt, "End of the Road". This piece has also been a winner previously.

Stay tuned for more news of ARTAA members and be sure to leave us comments.
