You could be swinging on a star!

Last week Quilts Inc announced their Silver Star Award Winner for 2008, and it's my fav quilting celebrity Alex Anderson. It's a huge award in the quilting world..HUGE. You quilters might know her from her many books or the show Simply Quilts that ran for 10 years. Some of you might have checked out The Quilt Show, which is her latest endeavor.
I met Alex when I first started working at Going to Pieces, a quilt shop in Pleasanton, probably 13 years ago. Now I can hardly believe that I have had the opportunity to help her with projects, and even participate in a book! Not to mention most importantly, having her for a friend.

If you feel so inclined, please go here and leave a congratulatory message for Alex and tell her I sent you!!
And now, to make this about me, I'm stunt sewing for a Silver Star Award Winner!! Talk about next level my friends!
Ok, happy weekend !!!! It's going to be a rainy one here, so I can stay inside and maybe even sew!

Awesome achievment for Alex and what a great feeling it must be to be stunt sewing for such a neat lady and accomplished teacher and artist. I have taken several classes with Alex and she is such a down to earth person. I will zip over and leave her a note. Thanks for the heads up.

I've been a member of The Quilt Show from the very beginning. Alex and Ricky Tims get better with each show. I love what they're doing over there.
