Happy Dance!

The inspiration for my Sunburst was a photo of the surf breaking over a huge rock with the sun reflecting on the wet surface. The Edge ... where sky, sun, surf and rock meet.
I received some great news and need to share it!
Congratulations! Your quilt Sunburst has been selected for inclusion in the special exhibit 'O, Canada'. We received many exceptional entries for this first year of the exhibit, which will premiere at International Quilt Festival in Chicago. Ultimately 44 quilts were chosen.
The exhibit will also travel in 2009 to various International Quilt Festival and Market sponsored shows. The current schedule includes the following shows:
• Summer International Quilt Festival, July 24 - 26, 2009 Long Beach, California USA (open to the public)
• Fall International Quilt Market, October 10 - October 12, 2009 Houston, Texas USA (limited to the trade only, not open to the public)
• Fall International Quilt Festival, October 14 - October 18, 2009 Houston, Texas USA (open to the public)
So ... the show runs concurrently with the Houston show. I've never been there ... perhaps this is the year!

Way to go Vivian! It's beautiful.


Great news Vivian! I'll be able to see your piece in Houston since I've been invited to teach! Hopefully you can come too!
