Distinguished Quilter Award

Janet Hughes received the Distinguished Quilter Award for 2019

 

“I have been a member of QU for well over 20 years, but never imagined I’d be chosen as Distinguished Quilter of the Year.  With so many talented, accomplished quilters in the guild, I am both honored and humbled to receive this award.  While my main objective has always been to have fun with fabric, it is nice to know others enjoy my work.  With thanks to all, Janet”
