I thought about this post a lot today after reading several of the other posts on QuiltCon Quilt Show announcements made yesterday, and wondered whether I should write this or not.
Before I start, everyone should go over and read this post “Former QuiltCon Juror Tells All” by Latifah Saafir, it is very informative about how quilt show selection is made. Worth a read. I learned a lot.
There are so many amazing quilts out there that were entered to the QuiltCon Quilt Show. I think everyone deserves a pat on the back for completing their quilts, that you can be proud of your work and for taking the leap to submit your quilt into a show.
I know, personally speaking, this was a very hard step for me. I had to work hard to get my quilts finished. I worked hard to overcome the self-doubt, especially since I have only been quilting just over 2 years and this is my first show. I am so thankful, for our quilting community and my IG friends, without the support you have all shown me I would not have submitted or finished anything (for that matter).
Here were my submissions into QuiltCon Quilt Show.
I know a lot of quilts did not get in and so many of them I love!! So, I am so honored that both of my quilts did make it into QuiltCon.
Now, I am off to work out how to make and attach quilt sleeves, and how to make a quilt label. I am so excited about meeting so many people I chat to online or IG, volunteering, attending classes and lectures and also seeing all those quilts in person. This will be such a fantastic event!! See you soon.
