Whoohoo~! Accepted into Special Exhibit at Houston This Fall!

My little buddy has been accepted into a special exhibit at International Quilt Market and Festival in Houston in the Fall! The Festival Awareness Project 2013 is called "It's Raining Cats and Dogs".
Julie, the Red-Dog Enterprises-picture-to-fabric printer, suggested I send it in. The last day to register was just before the GVQC quilt show (when I was feverishly finishing this quilt and the 2 Boho bags). I literally finished him, took the pics and submitted just in time! Julie Brandon & Val Schultz had a piece in the last shows special exhibit in Houston. Only 30 quilts were accepted. I am pretty excited.
He was originally named "Live Free". When I took the class with Julie, I added LIVE  FREE to the image. It ended up being cut away, so when I entered him in the GVQC show, I called him Spot. Yes, original. I am not one for long, overdone names. He is "Live Free", as he should be with his American flag on his chest.

Well deserved Kath! Even though I saw it in stages as you worked on it I was still blown away when I saw it hanging at the Genesee Valley show! Awesome job!
