The short story is:
One of the quilters participating in my Modern Mini Mystery Round Robin is Vicki. She lives in my other home turf area, the one where hubs is from and where my mom, youngest sister and brother have lived for 20+ years. I even lived there too for a while before hubs and I moved to this area.
Anyway I had emailed Vicki about an upcoming quilt show next month and thought she'd like to come. We could finally meet in person. Unfortunately the dates don't work for her but she did suggest that I come to her guild's show the following weekend.
I could do that. I know that area well. Then she actually suggested that I enter a quilt or two in their show. What? Me enter a quilt in a show? Little thankfully-not-too-old-yet me?
I was honored that she thought my work is worthy. Well after a little pondering, I figured why not? I never planned on quilting to enter shows but I can't see any reason not to. The fee is very inexpensive and it would be cool to see my quilts hanging for all to see.
Now the next question....to be judged or not? It is only a couple of dollars more for this and while I certainly don't need to have the approval of official judges, it would be nice to read the suggestions they provide in their report. Plus it would be ultra awesome if I actually won a ribbon. Icing on the cake so to say.
So I've decided to do both...enter a few of my quilts and get them judged. But then the biggest question of all looms? Which ones to enter? I don't want to enter them all. Just a couple, 4 max. Narrowing down the possibilities is the hard part.
Vicki would love it if I entered Jammer's One Hundred Good Wishes quilt but it is over their size limit. The 100 Good Wishes Quilt for Miss M that I am finishing the binding on is way overdue so I don't feel right about holding onto it for a month+ longer.
The options that I am left to choose from are:
Tribute to Danny
Thistles and Vines
Sound the Alarm
Pretty in Pink
Luv U Letters
Those not in my position I can get back in time so no worries there. So help me out here PLEASE. Tell me which ones you'd enter if you were me. I need your input to help me decide. I'm begging here people.
The entry forms need to get in the mail today to make the deadline so Hurry, Hurry and add your comment. I sew appreciate your thoughts!
