My quilt came home from PIQF. I am always happy to get them back. I always have that lingering fear that my quilt will be lost in the mail. A California cyber-friend Judy, took pictures of my quilt hanging at the show . It didn't win anything. I didn't expect it would. I'm just starting at this, I am happy that it got juried in. my quilting and binding has been complemented in every show it has been in. This time the judges said:
- Excellent quilting inthe black border areas
- Very nicely bound
- Embellishments in keeping with the theme
I think that I should use what appear to be my strengths, and make a quilt that would be a little more on the traditional side. But not too traditional... Not that I profess to be any kind of an expert, but a lot of people are doing bright fused things, and most of them are better than I am. I must admit, I do awesome hand applique, even if I must say so myself. I should put that to use. And there is always my mini pineapple. I can't wait to finish it so I can show everyone. I have two of the border rows of blocks on, and I am working on the long sides. I only have 14 blocks to go... or about 20 hours.. I have worked so hard on this. I am really hoping to get it juried into Paducah.. my favorite show. I will admit, I will be disappointed if they don't want it. All of this hinges on if I can actually finish it by mid December. I hadn't figured on it taking so long!!!
Sorry to all of you that wait for me to post something. I have a mostly non-eventful life. Don't generally have much to say. I like to have a picture to post.. all reasons why I haven't put anything up lately. I'll try harder!!!
