What An Honor

 What an HONOR!

Friday was a wild day - the kind that takes your breath away!
I had an email from International Quilt Festival.
I quickly opened it hoping all was well with the quilts for my exhibit.
The quilts were all been shipped to Houston from all over the US & Canada in June.

It was an email advising me my Catherine's Garden quilt was chosen 
as the 2022 Signature Quilt!


We exchanged contracts and it was announced in a matter of a few hours!
Did I say Wow?

I wasn't even aware that was a possibility - I've learned much about the process.

This is the antique quilt from our collection:
Chrome Yellow Ground Fabric

If you are going to Houston please stop and say hello!
I will be at the exhibit at 1pm Saturday - for sure for an exhibit talk.
I will be there others times as well - we can also setup a time to meet.

All of the quilts are precious - so much history and so many stories to tell!
Stay tuned to learn why my husband calls the antique Catherine - His
One of several stories.

We also did a BOM program with the flower blocks HERE.
