Whoo Hoo For MQX West!

free motion quilting | Leah DayYay! I just got my quilted jacket back from MQX West with a pretty blue ribbon. She won 1st place Every Day Wear which is perfect because I do indeed wear this jacket every day in the fall and spring.

I'm thrilled that she ribboned, but even happier to have my jacket back safe and sound. Who knows, maybe next year I'll enter a few goddess quilts into an MQX show instead!

Super thank you to Barbara who let me know about this ribbon and Cari who sent me a photo!

Let's go quilt,

Leah Day

  2. CONGRATS! I was actually at MQX-West on the Saturday. I saw all of the garments, but didn't look closely enough to realize that yours was among them (blush). I would have taken a ton of pictures of it! Sorry. FWIW, there was some super-high quality, amazing quilting there (from all over the world)! So glad that yours was recognized and awarded!!! There's also a few pics of the show on my blog if you're interested!

  10. Oh Leah, that jacket is absolutely beautiful. Congratulations on your win!

    Makes me want to start doing a lot more FMQ practice. I'd love to be able to make a jacket like that.

  11. Leah.......this is such a gorgeous jacket and worthy of BEST IN SHOW if I was judging. I have admired it since I first saw it on your blog.
    Wishing you continued success in all you do,
