Accepted for Quilt National 2007

The day I headed out to South Project in Santiago, I got news that one of my new quilts with leather appliques has been accepted into next year’s show. I had the mountain of forms to fill in and the quilt to rush off up to Athens for photography for it all to be there by October 13th – that is really tight for international entries being accepted – maybe there’s good reason, but I wonder if they might loosen that. No pic here or on my website yet, because of course publishing it anywhere will preclude future participation, so I’ll arrange for a pic to go up after the Memorial Day opening weekend next year. It’s hard enough to get in, without shooting yourself in the foot that way. I was accepted for 1993 and 1995, and have entered every show since then, but without success until this year, so I am really thrilled, and of course will go up to the US for the opening and be part of what is always a special weekend – the Dairy Barn people treat exhibitors like royalty, and although Hilary Fletcher will be sadly missed this time, I am sure great and possible new traditions will continue and emerge around this very prestigious show.
