Chicago, Here We Come!

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!

  1. 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
