As I enter quilt shows of various types, I'm always pleased when the judges appreciate my work in some way. Recently my quilt "Wild Rhodies" was awarded "Honorable Mention" at the 2015 American Q Soc, Paducah, KY show. It's always an honor to have something recognized there.
Then there are local shows--this one a Redwood Art Association exhibit. My quilt "Come Sit with Me" was awarded Honorable Mention there. A bit smaller show of course, but being in an "art" show with a quilt it's especially nice.
