Mona sent along an email so excited to tell me what she won with her rendition of Easy Street at her quilt show in Melbourne, Florida this past weekend!
Little did she know that I had already received another email from someone who attended the show, saw the quilt and recognized it right off and sent ME photos to share in Ramona’s excitement behind the scenes.
I went to our local (Melbourne, Florida) Quilt Show yesterday and just had to share this with you.
A lady named Mona Collins won 1st place in the Pieced/Collaborative category for her quilt “Sparkling Sea Glass”.
She also won Best in the First Time Quilt Show entry for this Easy Street quilt!! Two awards for one quilt!

And then Mona’s email came in!
Beautiful proud smile!
Our quilt show was the 7th and 8th. I won two ribbons for my Easy Street "Sparkling Sea Glass".Thank you to Deb for being on the look out, and to Mona for both sending me photos. I’m so pleased to see the ribbons hanging on her beautiful quilt!
Scott Murkin was the judge for our show, "Timeless Treasures", given by Seaside Piecemakers Guild in Melbourne, FL. I hope to see you as one of our lecturers/teachers in the near future. Thanks for everything you do Bonnie.
This was my first time ever to enter a quilt show, and Easy Street was only the 2nd quilt I completed (not including quilts for my grandsons), so I was very humbled and happy by the "First Place" ribbon and the "Best of First Time Quilt Show Entry" ribbon.

It’s been a great day here at Quilt Villa.
Paper work has been completed. Sewing has been on-going. A long hike has given me more than the 10,000 steps I needed, and there was “just enough” peanut butter in the jar to go with my sliced apple as a snack. You know that something must be right if you have JUST ENOUGH.
And I think there is a life lesson in there somewhere, don’t you? Just enough. Just enough to be happy, to be busy, to be well fed, to be cared for. I don’t need excess ---just enough is ENOUGH.
Have a great Sunday evening, everyone!
