Quilting Awards

October 2018: One of my regular blog readers  recently asked me why I no longer exhibit, and I thought I'd answer that question here.

 

I started blogging in 2008 and released my first BOM that same year. As soon as I started blogging, my desire to exhibit quickly diminished. On top of that, I was frankly so busy and absorbed in my own work and my online Quilt Group that most quilt shows (and their deadlines) came and went before I'd realized it was 'that time of year again'. I thoroughly enjoyed reading about the shows that had been but wasn't concerned that I wasn't attending them in person.

Now that I'm seeing many of my quilt patterns making it into shows worldwide (!!), my interest in actually attending quilt shows again is growing and who knows, I might see you at the next show in person.

 

Do stop and say hello if you see me, I love meeting friends when I'm out and about.
