Problem Solved!

What to do, just finished flat dyeing 5 yards of fat quarters and they are peacefully laid out all over the back yard.  Ah yes, every thing is back in place and now we batch.  But the storm clouds gather and it’s going to rain batching or not.

QUICK JEAN THINK FAST – where can I put the fabric?  Basement is out, studio’s too small, upstairs will be too messy…..

AH YES!  IN MY VAN! Perfect the temperature is warm, plenty of room to stack them all up on top of a tarp, and I don’t have to move them until they are done.

Problem Solved!

I made it into the National Quilt Museum in Paducah Kentucky!

SAQA’s third Trunk Show Curated by Eileen Doughty, it was designed to showcase SAQA’s diversity of talent and its mission to “promote the art quilt through education, exhibitions, professional development, documentation, and publications.”
Fifty quilts out of 407 from this exhibition were chosen by jurors B. J. Adams and Trudi Van Dyke to become a permanent part of the collection of the National Quilt Museum in Paducah, Kentucky. The jurying was done with the quilts, not images.
