Might I just say that I love it! All will be revealed soon.
You may notice that I put my 2011 goals up in the right hand column at the top. I thought it would be fun to share them. For my out of country quilting friends, I will explain. CQA is our Canadian Quilting Association. Each year they put on a juried show and each year I submit. I have had my quilts accepted twice. But I have never attended a show, so have never seen my quilts hang in a juried exhibition.
This year, it is in my province and I am determined to go. One, to meet all the people I have met online. Two, because I so want to see one of my quilts hanging in the show. Now I realize that I may be going down and no quilts will have been accepted. But I will cross that bridge when the time comes.
The Trend Tex Challenge I mentioned is CQA's fundraiser. You purchase 5 fat quarters and have to follow a theme and size and make a quilt based on that. The quilt is then donated to be auctioned off at the CQA convention. So even if none of my quilts get juried into the show, I can donate this quilt and see it hanging at Quilt London.
Lastly, my comment about 'keep trying'... that will be told when the time is right.
I will leave you with my quote for 2011:
