Quilt! Knit! Stitch! August 2014, Focus on Beauty 2
After the Missouri Star Quilt Iron Quilter challenge in November/December of 2013, I was invited to participate in a special exhibit sponsored by Quilts, Etc. (International Quilters Association) for the upcoming Quilt! Knit! Stitch! to be held Aug 14-16, 2014 in Portland, OR. The exhibit was by invitation only and coordinated by Janet-Lee of MQX shows. I understood originally that it was to feature the talents of little known quilters. Imagine how surprised and honored I was to see the entrance sign below:
Here is a view of my quilt displayed between two renowned quilters whose work I am very familiar with and I truly admire: Kimmy Brunner and Judi Madson.
Here are the closeups of Focus on Beauty 2 which was featured in the exhibit, It is a remake of the Focus on Beauty quilt originally entered in the Missouri Star Iron Quilter Challenge. To see the original story (which may perhaps explain why I felt the need to remake the quilt prior to up close and personal national attention.) See the original post "Focus on Beauty" December 2013.
