My Almost Prize-winning Quilt
Peach Days and the Zion Piecemakers Quilt Guild Annual Show have now passed, and this challenge quilt now hangs on Grace's wall as a result. The bottom mattress is pinned up for your benefit, since you can't lift it up to see "the pea." The Princess and the Pea is undoubtedly the most poorly executed quilt that was entered into the challenge. (I can say that comfortably because I made it, bunchy sides and all.) However, I have it on good authority that I received the second most votes right behind the fabulous well-deserving Snow White one with the witch, cottage, and apple. This just goes to show that even if you don't have it all together, people might like your spunk in spite of the fact that your colors don't match.
