There are so many beautiful miniature quilts being made. Some are entered into quilt shows, some that are just as beautiful never are. After a long break, my quilt CHASING LIBERTY was accepted into 3 major shows. I didn't get any ribbons there, which is okay. What is important is that I love it. This quilt is probably my most favorite of all of the quilts that I have made. Recently, I put it into my guild's show. I always wrestle with doing this, because I don't want any resentment real or imagined that I would put a quilt that has been in juried shows into my guild's show. Even writing this makes me feel like I think entirely too much of myself. That definitely isn't the case. I just want to share my quilts with local quilters that aren't fortunate enough to get to go to the big shows. That, and I am NOT a prolific quilter. I'm more of a thinker and designer, but when it comes down to it, I end up knitting. You wouldn't believe how many shawls I have. I like to knit, and shawls are the most fun.. especially the intricate lacy designs with lots of beads. I recently finished one that has 5,000 tiny beads! Totally useless for anything other than stunning non-knitters. LOL
Anyway, I put two of my most recent finished quilts into my guilds show, and was honored to get this
I'm going to get back to work. I have an art quilt that I wanted done by June.. that isn't going to happen. But I am going to work on a miniature that I've been thinking about. Just for fun. I don't have another competition quilt in me right now. They are so much work!!
Today, I got a nice email from a lady named Terri who told me that I still have an audience. So since I know that one person is still looking at my blog, it is time that I get moving on something that might be helpful to someone that is interested in making miniatures.
Spring is here!! time to wipe away the cobwebs and get to work!!
