I am delighted to inform you that the block you submitted to our Quilt Block Contest for the 2012 Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show has been selected as one of four Honorable Mentions! The Quilter's Affair teachers selected their top five favorites last night, and they had a very difficult time choosing, because we had a wonderful number of very creative and amazing blocks. The top vote recipient is declared Best in Show, and the next four top recipients are declared Honorable Mentions. There were only a couple of votes separating all the favorites! You can feel very proud that yours was among the top five of of 113 entries.
As an Honorable Mention, your block will receive a special ribbon in the display that will be up for the show. All the blocks will be displayed this Saturday on the Remax Building wall in the Town Square in Sisters, and again on Sunday on the back wall of Beacham's just behind the Stitchin' Post. In addition, after the show, each of you will receive about 22 blocks (including your own) and extra fabric for borders or sashing. We hope that you will make a quilt of these blocks and submit it to our 2013 show. We love to see the finished products!
If you are on Facebook, photos of the contest blocks and all of the winners are now posted on our Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show page. I will also take a lot of photos on show day and post them on Shutterfly. I will send you the link to look at them when they are ready. It's going to be a great display!
Congratulations, and well done!

|Here's my block. You could embellish any way you like and I added large rick rack, embroidery, silk-like flowers and buttons.|
