The Report From the Show Floor
The International Quilt Festival in Houston, TX opened today. Here's a photo that VickiW sent me from the show of American Beauty:
As you can see, I got an Honorable Mention. I am thrilled and satisfied with the placing. I certainly wished to place higher, but this is the first time I've felt that I've had work worthy to even enter into the IQF. Since this is the first time I've had an entry in this particular show, I am very pleased with how things turned out. Maybe next year I'll place higher! (For the complete list of winners, click here; scroll all the way down to the bottom, where you'll see the garments!)
I'd just like to say hello and thank you to all of you who have commented for the first time recently! I'm glad you're enjoying all the odd things I find interesting enough to share. Don't be shy and comment again when the mood strikes.
Parting Shot: Midnight Garden appliqué. I thought you'd like a sneak peek at how the applique is coming along. The pale blue flower at far right is just pinned on in this photo, but I got it stitched down on the bus this morning.
