A Win

I was asked to have two of my art quilts hang in a museum in a neighbouring town.   I have never been asked to have my work hung anywhere nearby.   Naturally I was thrilled and accepted.   It wasn't too difficult to choose as I had 3 new pieces, but two of them were heading out to Des Moines Iowa to be in the AQS juried show, so I brought in a new one and a slightly older one.

Last Thursday night, I attended the awards ceremony and imagine my delight when 'Let The Vines Shine Thru' won Best of Textiles.   This one was also juried into the Canadian Quilt Show in May.




 This quilt is called 'The First Flower'.  It was juried in 2009 to the Canadian Quilt Show.   It will always have a special place in my heart because it was this quilt that I accidentally stumbled and then developed my unique 3D method for flowers.

I am currently working on two projects both with deadlines this week.   Both not near done... please don't tell!
