I participated in GVQC's Iron Quilter competition, held in conjunction with their huge, awesome quilt show at R.I.T. this weekend. 20 women came....10 themed categories announced at 10:00 AM (eg: frivolous, dancing, childlike, poetic, joyous, etc...and the one I chose, "the diet") I really chose the diet because it seemed less abstract. I felt with the other themes you really had to invoke a feeling. Not impossible, but not possible for me in 3 1/2 hours!
I want to blog about the process with pics my friends are supplying me with. I look forward to telling you the day-story. Soon.
I haven't downloaded pics yet, but my friend Elaine alerted me to Beth's Blog and a post with pic of my piece ( and couple others) and good explanation of the the competition. I will quickly say I had a BLAST with the whole process!
AND I won a Bernina Bernette 82e sewing machine!
Thank you to GVQC for an unforgettable experience and the new machine!
More to follow....when I have more time....and patience downloading my pics....!
I would like to thank my friends that stopped, stayed and cheered me on Saturday!
