Wild Onion Jacket prize winner

Recently, I entered one of my Wild Onion Jackets in an international longarm quilt show called Machine Quilter’s Exposition (MQX for short!).  I just found out that I won third place in the Jacket portion of the Garment competition!

This is the first time I have entered such a highly competitive show, and I am thrilled by the success and recognition.  I am also pleased that a simple to sew pattern like the Wild Onion Jacket can hold its own against more complicated sewing patterns!

Because this is a longarm quilting competition, this jacket features very dense quilting patterns:

My poor photography skills don’t do justice to the subtle colors and textures of the jacket.  If you are planning on attending the Quilting with Machines show in October, you will be able to see this jacket in person at the Wild Onion Jacket Fashion show!
