Also I got this week an email letting me know that one of my quilts is selected by jury to be exhibited at the International Exhibition on Textile Art "Scythia7" in the Ukraine in June this year. Another country to add to my list of where my quilts have been shown :-).
A few days ago I showed the first layout for my black and white quilt which I am making for Pamela Allen's class. After her critique I made some changes to it, like a different fabric for the palm trunks and added some rigging to the sailing boat. I rawedged all the pieces, trimmed the quilt a bit so that it is now 20"x20", quilted it and added a binding. I am calling this 'Sailing to the tropics'.
