Acceptance

Yea! I finally got something juried into a show. After a string of rejections lately, I was about ready to throw in the towel. So it felt really good today when I got my letter in the mail telling me that I was accepted. Unfortunately, I can't show you the quilt, but it's one of my painted cabbages, "Mon Petit Chou". This show, the New England SAQA No Holds Barred, stipulates that the quilt not be shown on a blog or website previous to the show. They want it to be fresh and new to the viewers. The show will be at the New England Quilt Museum in Lowell, MA from January 20- April 19 and is to showcase the best of New England contemporary art quilts.

I was happy to get this little boost to my deflated ego. I ordered some new dyes today and plan to dye this weekend. All greens for a new quilt I have in mind. I'll show the results when I'm finished.

Yay! congratulations.
I'm hoping to make a trip to the museum over the winter and if so I'll get to see it there.
I'm wondering what you decided to do with the piece you showed last week. Did you straighten out that orange triangle? I really liked that piece, and the one before it, the blue interpretation, I especially loved the colors on both.

Congratulations Norma! I'm so glad you kept going and didn't throw in the towel. Your work deserves to be seen!
Can't wait to visit Lowell and see it in person.
