Wait I Can Explain!

My Summer Fun list is borderline insanity...

(no idea where this photo came from but it might be fun option...
instead of  making the entire quilt)

but I can explain!
I have some really fun news and it has me thinking in a whole different direction!



A few weeks ago a friend of mine and a member of my local quilt guild
stopped by and wanted to inform me that I had been nominated for 
Featured Quilter at the guilds' next quilt show.
I told her that was so nice! What a sweet honor. 
And thank you for the nomination... sorry I didn't get it.
But... she said "you DID get it"!!!
I was so excited to hear that.
Amazed in fact.
Me?
Wow!
Incredible!
Then I started thinking..
Crap!
What do I have to put in the show?
Will it be good enough?
Something old?
Something new?
That's when the lists started.
I went through a mental inventory of my quilts...

what one's could possibly be show worthy.

And then there are all the one's I have been wanting to make.

So far this year I have not been very productive.
So that brings me to Summer Fun.
An opportunity to shift into high gear and start 
putting a show together! 
I did have an exhibit of my quilts once...
in the Wawona Library at Yosemite National Park.
It was really fun. I even gave a lecture.
And I lived through it!.
So, I know I don't have to stress... but I still want it to be nice.
Thus... a long list of quilts to make!
And quilts that need to be quilted!!!
Fortunately, the show is next May.

Congratulations!
But I think they would be very interested in the quilts you've made in the past too!
In our guild, it is all about the quilts you'e made or designed, techniques, mentoring and your teaching you've done!
It will all be good!
Take care, Leslie
