7 of 9 wins honorable mention in Alliance for American Quilts "New from Old" Challenge

Just learned that my piece "7 of 9" won an honorable mention in this challenge.

For all the winners, see

Earlier someone asked what 7 techniques I used. They are:
1) pieced 9 patch black and white areas
2) pieced 9 patch overall background
3) 9 patches in puff paint dots on circular appliques
4) iron-on 9 patches
5) stenciled 9 patches
6) 9 patch quilting around iron-ons and stenciling
7) 9 patch couched grid

All of these entries will be displayed at the upcoming AQS show in Knoxville. And, they will all be up for auction soon. -PJ-

More news on this piece. Just learned today (7/8) that it also won a C&T Publishing honorable mention!
