    OK...I have to tell....

    My quilt, Crazy About Iris" will be in the AQS show in Des Moines in October. I took a chance and sent in my entry and I recieved word in July that it had been accepted! I have entered big shows before but never this big. I don't care if I win a prize or not....just getting accepted into the show is prize enough for me. I am so excited!!!

    I have attached pictures of my quilt. It is my own design and I did all of it on my Pfaff 2144. I embroderied iris on the blocks and did a lot of 3-D blocks and used many of the built in stitches too. I am very proud of this quilt.

    Congratulations and Whoopiee!!! I'm happy for BOTH of us!!! I remember when you first posted that lovely quilt, I wanted soooo much to get a closer look at it!! Well, now I can cause I've already got plans to go to DesMoines!!!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    What a NEAT quilt! I love the texture of it, you did so many interesting things! I wish I could go see it in person too, I bet it's even more impressive "in the flesh". Best of luck, I hope you get a ribbon!
