Here is a sneak preview of one of my quilts, Dragon, that was just accepted as a finalist in the Houston 2008 judged and juried show, Quilts: A World of Beauty! This is a detail shot of the piece, which I think is intriguing. I received 2 thin envelopes in 2007 for this show, and received 2 thick envelopes this year. I think that is improvement! I am delighted to have both Dragon and One Tree Quilt go to Houston for the International Quilt Festival during October 30-November 2. I will be able to attend again this year (yea! for living in Texas.) I will also have the pleasure to take a couple of power packed classes with some wonderful instructors. Thank you AQS and Olfa for the 2008 Young Designers Okada Award that is allowing me to attend those classes!
