Good News!

I was so pleased today to get the email notification that my quilt, "Of Cabbages and Kings" has been juried into the IQA show, Quilts: A World of Beauty in Houston this fall. This is a whole cloth painted quilt that was quilted using free-motion satin stitch.


Detail.

Last year was the first one in seven years that I did not have something in the show. I didn't enter because I just didn't have anything that I thought was right. This year I entered two and this was one accepted. So I will be going to Houston again this year. It's always a wonderful experience.

Wow! How big is it? What did you use to paint it? Hope I'll get to see it in person someday.

Thank you, everyone! To answer Maria's question, it is 33 x 37, not very big. It is painted with acrylic paints right out of the tube, thinned with a little water. It is a little stiff, but it rolls beautifully for shipping and can even be pressed right on the painted side if it does get creased. The paint does not chip or peel.
