    I've learnt so much from this board and received so much inspiration and encouragement since I joined that I wanted to share this little success with you all - some of my quilts hanging in an exhibition in our local Art Centre http://www.themeetinghouse.org.uk/visual_arts/205.

    I went to the Preview Party this afternoon and felt a little like an interloper amongst all the 'real' artists! :oops:

    I must say though, I DID like the look of my stuff hanging there. :-D Mine are the pink and dark blue twisted cabin (Raspberry Ripple) the red and white 3D pinwheels (Moulins Rouges) and the Victorian Tumbling Blocks over the fireplace. Also the Toile de Jouy Warm Wishes draped over the unit in the centre of the room. They'll hang there until Christmas and with any luck, I may even sell something! :mrgreen: :lol:

    Aww thanks everyone. I felt a little bit responsible too - as if I was flying the flag for quilting as an art form. A big responsibility! :mrgreen: :lol:

    Quilting is getting more recognition as a true art form, whether it be traditional or modern patterns. This is the first year our local art center has "selected" any quilt item as a part of their art exhibit and sale. Keep on "flying the flag".

    Thanks everyone. Greensleeves, I took a few pieces in for the curator of the exhibition to chose from and wasn't surprised that she chose the PP piece and the red and white but was surprised AND pleased that she also picked the tumbling blocks, which is VERY traditional. :-D It's nice to give both kinds an outing as I love both myself. :-D

    You work is lovely and well worth displaying. I enjoy every piece you post here, and it looks to me that it stands up just as well at a public showing. Thanks for the pictures!
