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.
That's awesome! Best fo luck and keep us posted.
I'll be rooting for you.

Fantastic!! You listened to your greatest fan, your other half. Please share your quilt when you can. You have a great forum of fans rooting for you.
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.
Wow Jenia, that is quit an accomplishment. You must be so so proud. Good for you!
