A new year is here and I’m jumping on the 100 days challenge. One of my goals is to blog at least 3 times in those 100 days. This one is just a warm up.
Ok, here we go! I’m kicking the year off with a celebratory post about my November Nights quilt that I made for Quiltcon. I’m celebrating because I just today mailed it off to LA, to the Quiltcon offices so that it can be displayed at the show! AH! Snoopy Dance! I’m also so very nervous, I hope it makes it alright and that once it arrives it’s in show worthy condition.
This is the photo I sent in with my entry. I hope it’s just as captivating in person.
I had an immediate vision of the quilt when I received the Michael Miller challenge fabric, with absolutely no idea how I would even attempt to make it a reality.
It’s a bit of a blur. I spent a LOT of late nights working it all out and avoiding it at the same time. I’m still not quite sure how I managed to pull it off, but I did, just barely. I cut it close, to the absolute last second. That’s how I work, under pressure and pushing the deadline.
I have to tell you all that I couldn’t have done any of this without having gone to Sewtopia. This post explains some of it, but it doesn’t tell you how much it sparked something in me. It helped me find a new path and this quilt was built because of Sewtopia. THANK YOU!
Thanks for stopping by and if you are in Pasadena, Ca for Quiltcon say “Hi!” to my quilt for me!
