My new girlfriend and I went to see my first quilt hanging in a show quilt. It was an amazing show and I am still impressed by the whole thing. Here are some pictures of the book they put together for the show. I wish I could have a picture of the quilt hanging there, but it was pretty high end and I didn't think it would look good to be snapping pictures!
This is my bio (and a few others) in the book.
And the second quilt in is of course my "Outside the Box" quilt designed by Weeks Ringle and Bill Kerr in "The Modern Quilt Workshop" and is my third one of this pattern. You can see some other moderns on those pages and my new friend Michelle made two of them and the donation/raffle quilt for the show too. Very impressive and I love how hers turned out!
They didn't wind up hanging my second quilt (Flock of Triangles) after all, but they still have that one there too. I can now cross that off my bucket list. DJ and I dressed up though people there were REALLY dressed up. They had champagne and snacks (horses doovers, lol) and it was a beautiful environment and show. There were many gorgeous quilts and it was an honor to have mine hanging up among them. The benefit was to raise money for autism so I hope it raised a lot!
I also put one of the blocks together for Carolina Crossroads...still have quite a few to go on this one...but will get to it over break I hope! We did manage to set up our tree last weekend and I have been wrapping presents and getting things in the mail and some cards out and all that this week. Theme of the month: EMBRACE CHANGE!
