A special surprise

Do you remember this quilt I showed you that was on display at our quilt show on the 28th of May , well this quilt won the viewers choice award last night at our meeting , the best part of that is this is MYquilt , I was totally shocked , never in my wildest dreams did I expect this to happen . There were so many beautiful quilts on display and they chose mine the Flower Garden Sampler , I mean wow and double wow .I was blown away and so very proud . This quilt was a BOM that we did with our quilt guild and was under the direction of Anne as our program coordinator .I thoroughly enjoyed making this quilt and it all came from my stash , I did buy the background fabric the pale green but otherwise this was a random , ok what do I have that will work for this block .  I just had to share this I hope you don't mind . I recieved a $25 gift certificate to our local fabric store , you know I won't have too much trouble spending that . Thanks so much for sharing in my honor and a huge thank you to all who voted .
