Keep on Quilting!

 

Still working on Inclusion! It’s taking more time than I thought, but I am determined to make the October 18th deadline.

I was going to put different ethnic houses on top of the earth, however, it was going to look too busy.  It was too empty without anything above the earth, so I decided to paint a saying. (I’ll reveal the saying on the finished photo post next week.)

Found the above brick fabric in my stash and became the perfect fabric backing for this quilt!

Now I’m quilting it.  I remember someone saying to me that the ribbon winning quilts seam to have a lot of dense quilting.  With that in mind I’ve been densely quilting!

It will be finished soon, and then I’ll be able to show you the completed piece!  Then we start praying that it will be juries into the AQS shows.

Thank you for reading my blog!

Inclusion!

I started this about 2 years ago for another competition which had the word converge as it’s theme.  Well, life happened and prevented me from completing it on time.

When I saw the verb definition of converge, it said something to the effect of…two or more people coming together for a common good.  That lead me to think of the world today and how there’s so much negativity towards another human due to the color of their skin, beliefs, or abilities.  God made all of us in his image. I am only a part of his image as is every other human on this planet.  (I choose God, you may say higher power, higher energy, etc.)

My point is that this world would be much more pleasant if we all accepted each other’s individualities.

This is not complete yet, and it will be completed by October 1.  This will be entered into the AQS shows for 2020.

Have a Wonderful Day!

Getting Ready for AQS Spring Paducah!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Going through my list of things to do to get ready for teaching at the AQS Spring Paducah Show from April 23-27, 2019!!!  It’s only 3 weeks away!!

I filled all of the little paint containers with Red, Yellow, Blue, and White paint.  Filling the Aloe Vera (Fabric Medium) containers was a bit tricky, but using a pastry bag and the big round piping tip worked perfect!!  Labeled all of the containers.

There are a few more things to pick up for my classes, have to do the step-outs for the ALL STAR REVIEW on Wednesday, and organize all of the boxes of class supplies I have.

I am really excited to attend this show!

My PAPA’S DOOR has been accepted in AQS Grand Rapids, Fall Paducah, and Des Moines shows for this year!  These are all international quilt shows and only 272 quilts have been accepted as semi-finalists.  This is the first time I am showing at a national competition of any kind!  I’m so excited to see comments of the judges.

This quilt is my first quilt that is one piece of white fabric and totally painted first then quilted.

If you go to see any of these AQS shows, please look for Papa’s Door and tell me how you like it!!

Have a wonderful day!!
