This is the quilt, Itajime Surprise. He wants it for an exhibit entitled Stitched in Time: American Quilts 1758-2014 that will run from Sept. 20 to January 18. Mine will be one of a few from the 21st century. Of course I said yes! I absolutely love this museum. It has a fabulous permanent collection and the most interesting special exhibits. I have been there several times. The museum, which opened in 1903, was the first to exclusively show American art.
My only problem is that this is the quilt that I was going to enter into the International Quilt Festival in Houston, TX. in October. I don't have anything else worthy this year, so I will have to miss having a quilt in that show. Of course it may not have been accepted, but I think I stood a pretty good chance, having been juried into many of their shows in previous years. Oh, well, I can always enter it next year.
Once again I've linked up with Off the Wall Friday. Go check it out.
