Here's a detail from my panel, taken while it was in process. The colors are a good deal more vivid than the photo shows on my monitor; might be different on yours.
Each panel is unique--we have very different styles. We were all pleased that the whole thing demonstrated a comfortable unity when finished; you never know for sure!
So--the IQF takes place in Houston October 27-November 2. Open to the public Oct. 30-Nov.2. (The first few days are classes and judging.) It's a wonderful mob scene every year, hundreds and hundreds of quilts of every type, thousands of viewers. There are even cash prizes. And hundreds of booths offering fabrics, embellishments, threads, machines, books, furniture--you name it.
"It's the Olympics, honey," a lady said to me the first time I got turned down. "Go home and enter some local shows."
Hope and Suzan each have an individual piece in the show, also. Mine got turned down--again. But that's OK. I can float under our Canopy for a while.
In the meantime, I'm working on a promised commission for friend Margot, derived from our Oaxaca trip in 2012. This uses Kaffe Fasset fabrics, fabric stenciling and painting, and who knows what-all, as my grandmother would say.
This is a process photo of part of the jacket back.
I'm going to go and stitch now.
