During QuiltCon 2023 I was honored to have been awarded the NACQJ AWARD OF MERIT for Outstanding Achievement in Quiltmaking by Certified Judge Nancy Fuka for my Joan of Arc Quilt.
A tremendous thank you for this honor.
About this award:
With prior approval of the show coordinator or sponsor, NACQJ Certified Judges have the option of awarding this special ribbon to a deserving quilt in any show he/she might judge. At the judge’s discretion, it will be awarded to one quilt achieving recognized standards of quilt-making excellence. This ribbon is not meant to conflict with any other show awards, but will be an encouraging addition to them, at no cost or obligation to the show sponsors.
The NACQJ Award of Merit is yet another way NACQJ strives to recognize and reward fine quilts. Makers of Award of Merit winning quilts will be presented a letter of congratulations in addition to a lovely rosette ribbon. They will also be invited to post photos of their quilts on the NACQJ website.
