Woo Hoo - Exciting News!! I'm very pleased to say that my Double Denim Wedding Ring quilt has been chosen to be part of a Double Wedding Ring Quilt exhibition. The group of quilts, curated by Victoria Findlay Wolfe will be on display at Original Sewing and Quilting Expos all around the US. I can only wish that the exhibition would come to Australia too, I'll keep my fingers crossed, you never know what can happen...
In the meantime I'm doing happy dances at the thought of my quilt travelling around and being part of a wonderful group of quilts. Yippee!!
The tour kicks off this weekend in Atlanta!! No doubt all the quilters there are already planning to go. Who can resist seeing those wonderful quilts, sewing workshops and maybe doing a bit of shopping too.

Phew!! That's quite a list of dates!! And what a great tour of the US!! If only I could travel with along with the quilt too. I was thinking that if any of you go to the show and see my quilt I would love it if you took a photo of yourself with my quilt and emailed it to me. You could wave at me if you like. It would be fun to know my quilt is having lots of friendly visitors.
