But about half an hour before that announcement our mail came.................
And guess what was in the mail?????????
Documents relating to the acceptance of my second Dutch Treat quilt.."Dutch Gold" into the juried AQS Des Moines Show Sept 28-Oct 1.
I am in absolute shock and at the same time scared to death! I'm not sure exactly why. I've entered many of my quilts in many shows. But with the exception of the Oklahoma Winter Show, none have been juried and certainly none have held the prestige of an AQS show. So I am humbled and honored.
I can't imagine that I will have any chance in the world of winning against the other 230 juried quilts. But I'll be happy to count this as a high point in my quilting life...just to be juried in.
Doing a happy dance.
Now, lets hear that verdict
