I received an email tonight telling me that the semi-finalists were posted on their website. I went and started at the top with the 'A's'. Fyi, my last name is White. I scrolled slowly down recognizing names such as Fallert, Caryl Bryer and Hansen, Gloria. By the 'R's' I couldn't take it anymore and had to zoom right to the 'W's'. Do you know what I saw?
Yeppers, my name! My little ol' name on the list for acceptances into Paducah with all those hot shot quilters!
The quilt is 'Let the Vines Shine Thru'. It uses my original 3D technique, stamping,Shiva paintstiks, my hand dyed fabrics and a ton of free motion quilting, none of it stippling.
This quilt was inspired by the border fabric. A fellow church member had found this vintage polyester fabric in her attic. Yes, I did say polyester. And yes, it was not near as nice as cotton to work with.
Let the festivities begin=)
