Good news!

Last year, Handi Quilter developed fingertip controlled micro handles for their HQ Sixteen. I was so excited to get mine!!! I quickly pieced a small top and started quilting. Ten hours later, I finished my quilt. The quilt had some minor issues, but I was happy with the sample. I was not happy with my dry eyes and sore neck. I advise against micro quilting for 10 hours at a time; 15 minutes and then a break seems like a much better schedule.

This winter, I decided to enter my micro quilting sample to a regional show. It was accepted.

Did you notice the blue ribbon? I won first place in the miniature category!

Here's a closeup of the quilting (but the blue ribbon is still there, I promise):
