    AQS Quilt Show Grand Rapids Michigan

    I'm on cloud nine. I open my accepting letters for two of my quilts for the upcoming show in Grand Rapids. If I win any other award would be icing on the cake as I'm completely satisfied with just being accepted.

    the quilts that were accepted were Spinning in the Wind and Las Cruces.

    Wish me luck!

    Congratulations. I did get a pattern of crosses and have hand stitched all the centre squares. Looking for fabric for coloured borders and sashing will look different.
    Good luck at the show

    Congratulations!! it's a BIG deal being accepted into one of the big shows. Ribbons are icing. I hope you get to attend as well. Best of luck on getting some icing!!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    I know exactly how you feel, because I had a quilt accepted into the show too. I'm under no illusion of any awards though, there are a number of imperfections in the quilt. But man, I cannot believe it is going to be in a show.

    Congratulations!

    Never have gotten to the stage of entering anything that I have done even in the local show, so you and skitti1321 both have my admiration for not only that, but having a quilt accepted.
    I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it difficult to plan the day.

    Congratulations! I've been working on getting back to Michigan for a visit and to attend my first AQS show. If it all works out, I'll definitely look for your quilts. How exciting!!!
