Cracked Ice was finished in November. If you are new to my blog or if you have forgotten, you can catch up here.
I’m excited to tell you it was juried into the AQS Quiltweek, April 22-25 in Paducah, KY.
It has its hanging sleeve. I almost didn’t look at the directions for the hanging sleeve because “I know how to make those.” Good thing I did. They want it made just a little bit differently. There is a label with my address, just in case it gets separated from its box (heaven forbid!). The quilt is in plastic just in case it gets wet (Let’s hope not). And all the labels and numbers and index cards are just like the directions say. Not for nothing did I go to grade school and learn to follow directions.
So tomorrow I’ll send it on its merry way. And chew nails and check the tracking info daily till it arrives.
It would be fun to be going too, but back when it was time to make decisions about which shows to attend, I hadn’t even thought about making a quilt to enter anywhere. On one of those sleepless nights (of which, luckily I have very few) I got the idea. (Designing quilts is more fun than counting sheep.) I checked the time table–I think deadlines were a month or six weeks away, something like that. So I’ll be happy with photos friends take and with seeing it in the book published with quilts in the show.
Just had to link to Show Off Saturday, button on sidebar. Sorry the photo didn’t come through on the link, but you can get there from here
