I'm so excited

Shattered

Shattered is going to QuiltCon! When I started quilting I did not set out to enter shows, but then I entered some challenges on the internet and that was not so bad. So when QuiltCon had a call for entries into a modern quilt show, I decided that it would not hurt to just give it a try.

I entered Shattered, and she has been accepted. She will get to hang in Austin, Texas where modern quilters will see her. Maybe some of my quilting heros might give her a glance too, as many of them will be there. It is so exciting.

And remember Noise? Well she got accepted too. I really am over the moon. I have to figure out how to make some hanging sleeves and labels and such.

You can count on a lot of pictures. I am going too. I will get to see them hanging there. Can't wait.

Thank you to everyone who has supported and encouraged me in this quilting thing, it really is all of you who give me the inspiration and motivation to make quilts and the encouragement to be so brazen as to enter them in things like this.

Best,

Leanne

diane said...

Congratulations. You deserve it. Both are lovely finishes, as is everything you make. Now for the big question, Can I have your autograph?

Rachel said...

Congratulations! How exciting.
For the sleeves, I would recommend putting in the ones that have an extra fold in the back (I'm sure they have a real name, can't think of it for the life of me). Anyway, they help the quilt hang a bit straighter than a flat sleeve.
