I just have to share my news.  I am so excited to have been picked as one of 30 finalists in the Grand Central Station quilt challenge!

This is my first contest entry and I can't believe they actually picked my piece to be up against those who are also professional quilters and far more talented than me.

Mmy husband talked me into it, and now I have to follow through.  I'm a bit scared to have my quilt judged in person, the first round was submitted in photos and a written essay.  That was the easy part.  Now for the true judgement day to come.

Congratulations, Jenia!  I hadn't heard of this contest, so I looked it up.

Top 30?!!!  That is quite a feat!  Can we see a picture of your creation, or is it top secret until the final annoucement?

Thank you all!  I knew you would all have great words of encouragement.

i want to show you what I did. I am so proud that they liked my idea.  

I even started a blog when I began the project, but it's a good thing I didn't publish it because of the contest rules.  I'm not sure if I'm allowed to show it yet, so I will wait a while just in case.
