There was all sorts of confusion over on Instagram when a guild friend delivered that news because I hadn’t received any official word from the festival itself, but it’s legit: Based on the average scores of the three judges, 47XY+21 earned a first-place ribbon.
And then, as you can see in the above picture, the same quilt was printed in the pages of the Well Said issue of Curated Quilts. If you haven’t checked out the issue yet, I recommend it. My project is in very good company.
If you’re wondering what this quilt is all about, it’s an abstract rendering of my younger son’s chromosomes. Unlike you and me, my little guy has an extra chromosome on the 21st pair, which is another way of saying he has Down syndrome.
