In the American Tradition VI

Material Marquetry

Remember the artist’s statement for Material Marquetry? Evidently, what I wrote was okay, since I had an email this morning that the quilt has been accepted for the In the American Tradition VI exhibit! I entered a quilt in this exhibit four or five years ago, and it wasn’t accepted, so I’m pretty excited that my quilt was accepted this time around. It’s a small exhibit, with only 25 quilts chosen, though they didn’t say how many entries there were. The exhibit will premier at International Quilt Market and Festival in Houston October 27 –November 4, 2007 (the public viewing dates for this exhibit are November 1-4, 2007), and will also travel in 2008 to various International Quilt Festival and Market sponsored shows.

Of course, this does mean that after I get the quilt back from the NQA Quilt Show in Columbus, Ohio, I’ll have to move the hanging sleeve, again. *sigh* The NQA show wanted the sleeve placed 90″ from the bottom of the quilt, but for the exhibit it has to be at the top of the quilt. Well, at least I’ll have this in mind (hopefully), so there won’t be any of this last-minute-before-shipping emergency hand sewing to move the darn thing! Hmm, wish I could get to one of those shows to see the other quilts in the exhibit, since I don’t think they do any sort of book or publication for this one. Going to have to think on that one…
