Number 85


A box. Not really interesting, is it?


Getting more interesting? Yes, I'm taking part on The Festival of Quilts 2012 in Birmingham UK! I'm so exited about it, I have been working on this for a year now. I will tell you all about it in August when the festival is held.

ps. If someone who is going happens to read this and could take me a picture of my quilt hanging on the exhibition I would be forever thankful!

Go number 85!!!!!
How exciting!!!!
You really have put yourself out there. I can only imagine that it was impossible not to feel a little proud of yourself when you finally had the quilt all boxed up with the address written out and everything. It takes an enormous effort to put yourself out there, in a public space, like that ... and that doesn't even begin to take into account the actual work that went into the quilt itself! I am looking forward to seeing photographs of the quilt. It really is too bad that you can't travel to see it hanging along side the rest of the entries. If you were able to see it "live", I think you would realize just how big of a deal this is - you have taken a big step and participated with those you don't know. Congratulations.

Thank you Carolina. It is a big deal and it does feel great that I did it!

Congratulations on getting your quilt made and into the Festival of Quilts! I think it is very exciting that you've done it. I went three years ago and it was a great day. So much to see. But sadly I don't think I am going this year though (no childcare, no spare cash) otherwise I would definitely have photographed the quilt for you. xx
