I'm going to keep this short and sweet, because the fact is, as thrilled as I am to have two of my quilts accepted to the QuiltCon 2016 show, it's tempered by the reality that so many folks are feeling less than pleased that theirs were not selected. We all know that's the way life is, and I've been there before and will be again. And with over 1800(!) quilts to choose from, there had to be some difficult choices. But still.
And yet, this space, among other things, is a place to document my quilting journey, and as such, I feel I owe the process enough to share those quilts and that news here.

Do visit the Instagram hashtags quiltcon and quiltcon2016, as well as quiltconreject, to see some fabulous quilts, none of which are really rejects of course, though I get the sentiment. If you want an eye into the process of quilt show selection, visit this post that Latifah Saafir wrote this time last year. It's insightful and enlightening. And I appreciated the honesty and graciousness shown in this post by Marianne/The Quilting Edge. It's poignant. There are alot of raw feelings in our community right now. I'm trusting we can affirm them all.
