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.
