From Sea to Shining Pennsylvania

Hi !!!

My quilt is traveling !!!

 I named it "Annabelle's Wedding Feast"...  Wedding Feast, because it was, after all, originally a tablecloth... Annabelle?  I don't know.  I seem to be in a pattern of naming my linen quilts after a woman, with an old-fashioned, three-syllable name.  Like Victoria, or Elizabeth -  or Annabelle.  somehow it seems to fit.  Here's the photo - which I should crop, but it's a long story about three different computers, and none of them wanting to crop tonight, so here it is, as is.


It will be in the Pennsylvania National Quilt Extravaganza, which opens on Thursday.  And today I just learned that it has also been accepted to the Pacific International Quilt Festival in October - yippee !!!! 

oh it's fun to see my pieces journeying around and sharing their beauty with everyone... to be honest, its a little nerve-wracking, too..............  (ok just get over it).

Oh it's just inspiring - I need to go sew another one !!!

take care,  Kate
