Too cool–‘Reinventing the Wheel’ featured–and it *wasn’t* a la QuiltCon.6:00:00 AM
This is just a quick post here for a Monday morning – last week Mancuso (Quiltfest) featured my quilt ‘Reinventing the Wheel’
in their call for entries/newsletter for their Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival in Hampton, VA in February this year!
It was fun to see this in my email inbox last week -
this was a bee quilt that won Honorable Mention in their Modern category last year (2016) at the same show (Mid-Atlantic).
Here’s the original post on the finish of the quilt when I didn’t get into QuiltCon.
I was upset when it didn’t get accepted to QuiltCon – and the reason for my write up today isn't to gloat about this, honest - but -
this post is my way of encouraging modern quilters (and quilters that don’t call themselves ‘modern’) to look outside of QuiltCon – QuiltCon is not the be-all end-all of quilt shows.
Entered a quilt and didn’t get into QuiltCon? Enter it somewhere else. Consider another show – AQS, IQF, Quiltfest, the list goes on. The Big Boys who’ve been around a LOT longer than the MQG are seeing the need for ‘Modern’ themed exhibits and are always looking for entries.There’s my 2 cents for today. Keep on truckin’.
