Wheeeeee! Tonight I finished the last stitch on the last label on the last quilt that's to be hung in the show... in 3 days I will go help get my display started. Final set-up is on Saturday, and the show officially opens next week.
It feels great to get to this point! I am happy I was asked to be a featured quilter, even though it has been more stressful than I anticipated. I worried about what to finish, how many to finish, would they be good enough, and would I get everything done in time. I feel good now and am satisfied it will be an adequate show..pretty quilts that won't embarrass me, and so many UFOs done. I'm proud of myself!
Tonya's advice to make quilts with love and to ignore the Quilt Police helped me a lot. So her quote saying as much is framed and ready to include in the show.
Next week I'll post pictures of the show including the other gorgeous quilts made by the very talented people in my guild. Just wait 'til you see them all!!! (And thanks for listening to my rants about this process.)
