Bait and Switch ????

So - - I was planning to enter This quilt in the World Quilt Festival New England, coming up soon...

Remember - this one...  it's been on a bit of a traveling jaunt to quilt shows... (I know you're sick of seeing it, but here goes one more time)
 So, I started the entry process, and paid my entry fee...  and then planned to go back later and enter the quilt photos.  Well, when I did, I saw that this particular quilt did not meet the minimum size for that show - - well, duh, I should have read the instructions...

So a couple of days later a very nice lady from the Mancuso office wrote me and asked why I didn't complete my entry and I explained the issue to her - - she confirmed that World Quilt Festival just doesn't have a category for small-medium wall quilts... but she hoped I would enter something else... How nice that was of her...   Cool.

But I didn't think I had anything worthy...  but finally decided to enter my Pineapple quilt , made from a Bonnie Hunter pattern she calls Pineapple Crazy.  I named it "Impossible !"  because it took forever, but it didn't make hardly a dent in my scrap piles !

So I sent this photo, and a close up of detail................... and.........................
IT GOT JURIED IN !!!!

Oh so fun...  I'm just tickled........... thank goodness it has a hanging sleeve already on it - so I have only to put on a label and pack it up for the journey !

I love quilting - every day it gives back such joy and comfort... and it keeps me out of the bars and off the street !!!!

Happy Quilting !

Congratulations! I'm glad you are staying out of trouble! Always remember how big (or small) the bail fund is before you decide to be too bad;-)

Fun indeed!! The pineapple quilt is fabulous and I know you will have another venue for the linen. Good luck.
