Hula Hibiscus wins BEST of Show at Pa. National Quilt Extravaganza!

I am truly in disbelief.  Never in m wildest dreams would I have thought I would win Best of Show…ok maybe in my wildest dreams.  I want to thank everyone for all of the emails and phone calls, your enthusiasm for my win has been a huge boost!  Thank you Thank you!!

I think that if you have a passion for what you do, it is inevitable that you will be successful.  I never thought of myself as creative growing up, hated art class, it was pure torture.  I found that once I fell into quilting, that I blossomed…  LOL  I have so much fun with what I do.  I hope to have a new class and DVD in the New year.  It has been slow going with a 2 year old.  Bear with me, hopefully you will think it was worth the wait.

I have brought forward the video I did on the making of Hula Hibiscus as I use my “Divide and Design, Conquering your Agoraphobia” technique.

On another note, my father’s treatment is going great!  At the midpoint, they did a PET scan and saw virtually no sign of the tumor.  He has one more treatment left!  Love you Dad!

  1. Way to go Lisa – well deserved! But especially, Way to Go for your Dad!! That’s got to be the happiest news of the year for you and your family!

    • Thanks Ray, but I think something stopped me today….. I nearly sliced the top of my finger off cutting an apple for my son. Boy does it throb.

  2. Congratulations! I was able to view your quilt up close and personal at the show. It was great seeing your quilt on display, as I walked in the door, with a shiny blue ribbon on it. The quilt is absolutely beautiful. Congratulations again!

  3. Bravo, Lisa! Hula Hibiscus is a stunning quilt, made by a seriously talented quilter. You deserve all of the recognition coming your way.
    Way to go, Mr. Lisa’s Father! From one survivor to another; just keep on going until it’s all over. I will save a chair for you here in Club Remission and will even buy you a drink with a little umbrella in it so we can drink a toast to your daughter.
