I am very excited to announce that both quilts I submitted were juried into the special exhibit “A Celebration of Color” which is debuting at the International Quilt Festival in Chicago in April! The quilts are “Playing Well Together” which I made for the Modern Quilts Unlimited magazine/Michael Miller fabric #mquOldisNew block and quilt challenge, and “Drunkard’s Bullseye WOW!” which was derived from one of the blocks from the #mquOldisNew challenge. Take that QuiltCon!
This was such uplifting news as I am recovering from head trauma that I sustained the first week of January when I was bucked off of my young mare. Fortunately I was wearing a helmet, or I probably wouldn’t be able to write this at all. I’m slowly recovering. For someone who is normally an energizer bunny, this has been difficult. I have been able to do some limited sewing and quilt designing, but find that I get really fatigued after an hour of concentration. I am hoping that I will be able to make the trip to Chicago in early April and see if one will get a ribbon. But regardless, it is such an honor to have not only one but two quilts chosen for such a prestigious show!

Jackie, How exciting! You must be so proud. I am betting you win 1st on one of your quilts. When judging starts and if you have been selected you will get a call telling you are a winner but not which place. Hope you continue to improve. I am sure it is frustrating when you are use to being busy. Hope to see you in March . Mary

That’s good to know! Thank you so much! I hope I can make it to the retreat in March, too. That’s almost 6 weeks off.
