Honestly, If you had some of your pieces in that show they would be just as nice or better. You have a better sense of color and pattern and hand quilt instead of relying on the machine.

I understand why people opt for machine quilting - it's sturdier than hand quilting, beieve it or not, and I would have entered something for consideration into this show, except that I had a migraine this summer, so the daisy didn't get finished, and I think they had a size constraint, so the ocean waves was out. Georgia from the Backroom Quilters scoffs and says to just lie and adjust where the hanging pocket is, and they can pin it up as they need to.

I'm not sure how I feel about it, but then she said the ocean needed to be entered in a show, so I'm going to go for it. Maybe not Three Rivers, but maybe the Hands all around? The daisy should be done in time for that.

Dearie, you don't still have my yukata pattern do you? I've been looking everywhere for it...

Hmm, I will take a look in the box with the other patterns. I don't think I still have it, but I'll double check - if I have it, it'll be there.

I think you should go for Three Rivers, Why not? I think the Ocean Waves is ready for a debut.
