Bragging Rights

Hooray!!!! As we all expected, 'A Street In Ireland' was juried into the International Quilt Festival in Houston this fall.
I so love this quilt.  Now, in order to hang the thing I have to follow the instructions of the entry to sew these on a black background that has the top sleeve to fit around the hanging 'pipe'.  I have more than two months to do that so time isn't really an issue. 

I also have this quilt
accepted into the show.  It is part of a grouping called 'A Sense of Scale' that will have the smallest quilts side by side with very large quilts.  This one, 'Full Circle' is 76 inches square and is made up of 16 individual quilts that are sewn together.  It's gonna be a bear to package up because it is a little stiff and doesn't fold well.  I have a couple months to worry about that too.  

Congratulations to Susie, Gayle, MaryAnn, Penny, Kay, Anne, Robbie, Irene and Judy.  You are too cool.

Congratulations on both accounts!

Could you roll the stiff quilt on a pool noodle? Roll it right side out (so that the front does not wrinkle or pick up creases, and roll from top to bottom or bottom to top, so that the weight of it helps to reflatten. There are some really fat pool noodles out there now, and you could pad it out with cheaper poly batting to make it larger and a gentler curve on that roll.

Congratulations to all of you. What an accomplishment! Best of luck at Houston.
