Here are some pics of the quilt... starting with a shot of the whole quilt: Isn't it amazing!!??!! I am just thrilled by the quilting...
My first chance to see the quilt will be at the quilt show in Utah in June. And if it's like most quilt shows, I won't even get to touch it when I see it!
I'm so excited... it will hang in two quilt shows this summer, before it hangs in my guild's show in October (assuming my guild even has a show in October - Mancuso Bros. have booked a show in Palm Springs the same weekend and we have lost most of our regular vendors to the Palm Springs show... without vendors, we may not even have a show, as the vendor booth fees pay for the venue).
Even one of our local quilt shops has deserted us and is even hosting a bus to Palm Springs for the show, pulling away our clientele as well... I think it's kind of rude but who am I to judge?
I was hoping to put the quilt in Road to California, but they had a partial version of the quilt in their show last year, so I sincerely doubt they will jury mine in this year... They don't like to repeat quilts, though I must say the quilting on that one was minimalistic to say the least and this one is far from that. Perhaps the beautiful quilting will get it in... We'll see.
