Starting my day with a fresh cup of coffee and these beauties.
Today is the day I've been preparing for
for the past seven weeks.
My first official art quilt is finished,
and I met the application deadline for the
annual juried quilt show called
My past seven weeks have been consumed with:
sketches and cartoons
hand applique, reverse applique and fused applique
18 colors of thread
batiks and silks
a thoroughly joyful process.
Avoiding potential disqualification,
I'm refraining from showing you the quilt just yet.
What I can share is that it tells not only my personal story,
but one that is universal. I dig that.
Should the quilt be accepted into this juried show,
I believe I could safely reveal in October, once the show opens.
If it's denied, then I'll show it as soon as possible.
I love it, and I can't wait to share it with you!
Last week, I showed you three bobbins of singles,
and I promised to show you all three plied together.
Above: Fat Cat Knits, BFL, 3 ply, 844 yards (!)
Below: Bobbin ends, Fat Cat and IntoTheWhirled, 3 ply
Below, 900 yards slung over another of my favorite coffee spots.
Wish me and my art quilt luck!
I'll let you know the results as soon as I hear.
What are you working on?
I'd love to hear!
