No, I am not going to Houston.
But my latest shadow trapunto quilt will be there, for a few days, in November.
It has been accepted into the 2012 International Quilt Festival.
|I named it A World of Many Colors
(I know, not too inspired! I am engineer!)
I am so happy, since I made it, it stays rolled on top of a closet. I can’t even think to hang it on a wall, because of the cats!
Now, to finish hand stitching the hanging sleeve!
Are you going to Houston ?
What a beautiful quilt!
Your cuilt deserves to be at Huston. It is so beautiful.
And no I am not going to Huston. I would love to, but I live in Denmark, so the teip would take a wail and can not leave my students that long
Lots of Love
Little Island Quilting says
Very well deserved. And no, I'm not going to Houston either!
I am sure it will attract a lot of attention – its clever and different! I hope you win a prize!
I don't have cats, so when it is finished hanging in Houston, just send to to me in Vienna, West Virgina and I will hang it on my wall.

Congratulations.It is so great that it deserves a trip to Houston.I live in Norway so there will be no trip to Houston.
The quilt is gorgeous and I say Congratulations on being juried in! I heard only 54% of the quilts sent in were juried in this year!
If you don't want to hang it, send it to me after the show and I will hang it next to "The Angel" that I won from Sharon Schamber. 🙂
Pam Cornutt says
Congrats! Maybe you will win a ribbon 🙂
Oh I'm so excited it got accepted! It is a stunning quilt!
I am NOT going to Houston, and am so so sad. My entire family is from Texas and my grandmother-in-law recently started quilting and asked me to make the trip down to take some classes with her. I had to decline, because my husband and I found out this awesome bonding with Nan/quilting experience would cost over $1000… It is tough to justify that vacation cost if I'm going without him.
After seeing the list of teachers, I am SO sad I am missing out. And now I'm missing a chance to see your quilt too 🙁

Fabulous! You have belonged there for so long. This quilt is stunning!
I am doing a happy dance for you – so glad it got accepted for the competition. I wish I could attend to see it in person though. (sad face for me)

Succes! Meriti din plin avand in vedere atentia la detalii si dragostea cu care l-ai facut!
Denise Russell says
How awesome! Congratulations! I will not be there… so I will miss the opportunity to drool in person in front of your work!!! Have a wonderful weekend.
I cannot wrap my brain around your engineering of the quilts. Amazing and beautiful work! I LOVE the colors you choose and the patterns you are making. I hope I can save up and purchase them very soon. Simply Beautiful work!!
I live in Houston cant wait to see it hanging here.,
Well deserved! I love this quilt! I wish I was going to Houston. I went last year with my sister and had a great time.
So well deserved! Now many will get to see your beautiful workmanship in person! contrats!
I should have known that you are an engineer – it´s so mathematically precise and mathematically beautiful! This quilt really belongs to Houston!
Kati from Kati's Quilting says
Congratulations on your acceptance, hope you'll win some nice awards! Too bad You can't personally be there to be so proud of your work. Your exceptional quilts are inspiring a lot of us, I'm really happy for you!
Your quilt is so beautiful. I'm sure it will be really appreciated in Houston, especially for all the work that's gone into it. It's a shame you have to keep it away from the cats. Ali x
I will be there and will be looking for your quilt specifically! Beautiful work.
Such a beautiful quilt and so precisely made! I will certainly look for it in Houston since I will be lucky to be there. Congratulations on the acceptance of your quilt and also for your book.
Heidi Grohs says
I will be there (live right down the road)! Can't wait to see a quilt I "know"!!
I just saw a post about you on "Sew Many Ways" and saw this quilt and fell in love with this quilt. I live in Houston and cannot wait to go see this in person!!!
