2013 New Years Resolution Review #2: Gather the courage to enter my work in a quilt show and/or competition

April brought SCVQA's bi-annual quilt show, Shower of Stars. I seized the opportunity to enter several of my quilts into this year's show both to represent my work as a quilter and to promote the workshops offered by SCVQA. I ended up having 8 pieces on display and a small modern block within the BAMQG banner.
It was a proud moment to see them on public display among the other 400+ absolutely gorgeous quilts made by our members.
Unfortunately, I totally wimped out about submitting any of my quilts for PIQF or the New Quilts of Northern California. Quite frankly, I didn't have anything new or ready in time to stand their own at PIQF. But I may just have to put my big girl pants on and finish quilting some quilt tops that could be serious contenders for October 2014 PIQF!

But I did go above and beyond by helping with the organization of the SCVQA quilt show which turned out to be a great learning experience and networking opportunity, along with loads of work! It was simply amazing to be part of the 12-hour transformation of the large convention center exhibit hall into a vibrant quilt show with over 400 quilts on display, 30+ vendors and all kinds of activities for attendees.
Fortunately, I get a 2 year reprieve until the next quilt show!
