I hired peeps for photography. Good peeps, the quilting kind of peeps. And by hired I mean I asked a favour, both of whom I had only met once in real life. But you know quilters, you meet them once, or you virtually meet them online... you have friends. For life.
These are good peeps. I heard one was going to Quilt Market in Houston, the other to Quilt Festival there. I sent one email saying that my quilt was selected to represent Canada in an exhibit being shown at both venues, if they saw it could they please take a picture. That is one big dream on the bucket list - to get to Houston Quilt Festival.
Get this, both delivered the goods or should I say jpeg. On the same day they got home! And no doubt they were tired from travelling, from walking the show floor, from taking workshops, but they took the time to email me a pic of my quilt hanging at that elusive Houston Quilt Festival and Quilt Market.
Those are good peeps. Thank you C and C! You made my day.
Here she is 'A Ripple In Time'. It has been gone for six months. It went to the CQA/ACC National Juried Show in Canada directly to AQS Paducah, and from there to Houston. How amazing is that all those organizations were willing to send the quilt to it's next destination without rerouting it home. Otherwise I wouldn't have been able to enter it into all those shows as the timelines were too tight to make it home and ship it back out again. Quilters rock!
It will be on its way home this week. I can't wait, I love having the opportunity to display my work. But I like my quilts to come home, it is like a part of me is back.
