Shameless Self-Promotion

The International Quilt Festival opened today in Houston, so I can finally post pictures of the "Journal Quilt" I made that is in one of the special exhibits.


Why, yes, those are Colts hoisting the Lombardi Trophy in Miami. That was the most interesting thing that happened to be in 2007, until the quilt went on display. As usual, I liked it while I was working on it but six weeks later I see all kinds of things I wish I'd done differently.

You can see pictures of good quilts in this year's show on their website. Most of the quilts displayed in Houston this weekend will be in Chicago in April.

That's really nice.

What would you have changed?

Thank you.

I think I could have been bolder about making the background a little more interesting--beads, confetti, something to represent the rain. I didn't want it to be too busy and ended up going too far the other way. I'll do better on the next one. :)
