Stressing

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:

ACK!

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.

  1. How about “and everything nice” ? I guess you’ve probably already entered it in a show, huh?

    I just love that quilt !

    Or what about the little rail fence up there in the left sidebar?

    • You are totally right — “and everything nice” was entered in the last quilt show 2 years ago. And no prizes! I was totally robbed! HA! (really, completely joking there.) But thanks so much for the compliments — it is definitely one of my favorites too.

      The little rail fence is a possibility. That one hangs right over my sewing desk, so I get to enjoy it all the time. I’ll definitely think about that one — it is small though — maybe 25″ square?

      Thanks so much for stopping by, Nancy

  2. What about your snowman quilt? I didn’t realize you had already finished it when I emailed you about fabric for the back (which you are still welcome to of course, plus the other batiks!).

    • My Mom also suggested the snowman quilt — I just hadn’t considered it since it’s a Christmas quilt, and it seems kind of odd to enter a Christmas quilt but it would fit in the “special occasion” category. I think I’m leaning towards entering it — it is pretty darn cool if I do say so myself!

      And it wasn’t finished when you e-mailed! But I did definitely want a flannel back, and we found something in the sale room at a quilt shop. My Mom did finish it this weekend though — can’t wait to see it!
