Compared to the previous posting, it was two hours well spent, I think!Â Now the area in front of the nose is not so jarring.
This week two quilts came home; “The Merchant’s House” from IQA Houston where it has toured for a year with Tactile Architecture. Beautifully packed and in just as good shape as when it left here, as is always the case from IQA.
“Spring Encounter” returned from Milwaukee Machine Quilting Show, not so lucky. It was crammed in a box with it’s padding tissue stuffed in the corners and arrived quite wrinkled along with it’s rather strange third place ribbon, also wrinkled. Strange because it is blue! But it is large and rather pretty and will look nice on the wall with the others once I press out the creases.
This was my first year entering that show which I believe is only in it’s second year. Unfortunately this year I have missed the entry deadline on some of my favorite shows, most recently Asheville, NC.
