I'm going to QuiltCon!

Okay, well, technically, I'm not going to QuiltCon, but two of my quilts are! This past fall, I worked hard to finish up two quilts that I wanted to submit to the QuiltCon show -- my first time submitting to a quilt show -- and managed to finish Convergence and Fading Star. Convergence was my response to the MQG's EZ Quilting Triangle Quilt Challenge, while Fading Star was an original design about which I'd thought for months. I got them in just under the wire, and a few weeks ago, I found out that Fading Star had been accepted! I was SO excited!
Then, the next day, I got an email from Allison Dutton, one of my bee mates from the Emerge Circle of do.Good Stitches, letting us know that one of our group quilts, Emerging Illusion, had also been accepted. I'd actually been hoping to submit our low-volume log cabin quilt into the bee/group category but wasn't able to finish in time, so I was so excited to hear that another of our quilts made it in! Allison did a great job of finishing the quilt. You can see my blocks from the quilt in this post.

I won't be able to attend the show this year, but it's a great honor to know two of my quilts will be hung among so many other awesome works of art. 2015 certainly ended on a high note for me!
