This is my friend Cindy. She lives in Reno, Nevada. I've known her for about 35 years. Her husband was best man at our wedding and he and Tim have know each other most of their lives.
Here she is visiting me in March. She has invited me to come see her and go to the Pacific International Quilt Show with her in Santa Clara, CA. She encouraged me to enter my quilt. This one:
So I made a deal with her and said I would enter if she would. She had a top that she pieced 16 years ago and had never quilted it. So she sent it to me and I took it to the fabulous Donna T who quilted mine. I was sure it would be juried into the show. In the meantime, since my friend Leslie's mom lives near there, I talked Leslie into entering a quilt, too. And guess who quilted it? Yep, Donna!
Here's Cindy's quilt.
So to make a long story short ( I know....too late!) and after weeks of waiting and nail biting I'm announcing that ALL THREE of our quilts have been juried into the show!!! Leslie and I took a leap of faith and bought plane tickets a couple of months ago so we're flying out to join Cindy in October. We're super excited to go to the biggest quilt show on the west coast and to see our quilts hanging in the show!Fun times ahead!!!
P.S. Donna T is pretty proud, too! Thanks, Donna for the beautiful quilting!
