My local quilt guild (Austin Area Quilt Guild) will be having their show in September (details here – Sept. 17-19), and I fully intend on entering some quilts, but totally stressed out about which ones!
I would like to enter 3 simply because I can, but I don’t think I have 3 to enter. boo.
Anyway, first quilt: I will definitely borrow one of my hands quilts back from its owner for the show — I think both are worthy but definitely don’t need to do both since they are so similar. Need to ask permission so I can complete the entry form appropriately.
Second quilt: I am working on getting Julia’s baptism signature quilt done. But it is still in just block stage, as you can see here:
By the way, TOTALLY going to post about this quilt soon! I’ve been taking pictures and pestering my mom for advice for a couple weeks now. I’m totally loving how it’s coming out so far!
Third quilt? I guess none. It seems a shame not to enter my max amount, but my output these past 2 years have been fairly ordinary. I have *so* many extraordinary quilts I’ve made in my mind, but somehow they aren’t in my hands.
And why am I stressing now when the show isn’t until September??? Because I have to enter the quilts by July 5th! They don’t have to be done by July 5th, but I have to promise on July 5th that they will be done! Decisions need to be made soon!
So PUSH me to finish at least Julia’s baptism signature quilt. I MUST finish it! And I guess 2 quilts will have to be good enough.
