Calendar Contest Quilt

Since my quilt was not one of the 13 picked for the Quilting Arts Calendar, I can now show you pictures of it. These next two show some of the details of the flowers and leaves.

It was a little disappointing not to be one of the 13 chosen for the calendar but I'm still thrilled to have just made it to the final judging. One of my goals that I set at the beginning of the year was to make a quilt to enter into the contest. Which I did accomplish. Making it to the finals was an added bonus. By entering, I made myself stretch and try some new techniques and I had fun.

It is still raining up here in NH. It is getting to me now. Having rain and gray skies for so long just makes me want to stay in bed or just stay in my pj's all day not doing much of anything. Not very inspiring for working on my quilts but I do make myself do something each day no matter how small. This weather also makes it hard to get up and get to work. I keep telling myself at least our well is full and the next time we get a good day, I can do some dyeing without worring about how much water I'm using.

I think it is very pretty.

I like your calendar quilt - the background is interesting and the 3d leaves also.

I like yours better than some that made it into the calendar--which I didn't order this year, I got it last year but this one doesn't seem as good.
