The Four Elements Journal Quilts for Houston 2008

I received some really wonderful news today from IQA (International Quilt Association) i.e. that one of the two Journal Quilts I submitted was accepted for exhibition in Houston. Only one quilt from each artist was accepted and the jurors (Virginia Spiegel and Jeanne Williamson) choose the one that I liked best of the two I submitted. We are to keep these a secret till the Houston show (end of October) so for now I will only say that the title of the selected JQ is: Flames of Passion.

The theme this year was the Four Elements and I actually made 4 in total; Flames of Passion, Earthly Pleasures, In Deep Water (the other one I submitted) and A Lot of Hot Air (only recently completed). I have decided to keep them all to myself till I can reveal Flames of Passion.
The only thing I will add is that I think they are among some of my best work so I'm over the moon that two quilters whose work I hugely admire, also liked it!

I know you have won a lot of awards, but this is really wonderful. ConGrATuLaTioNS!! I love all the titles for your JQs ~ So descriptive and imaginative. I do look forward to seeing you unveil all 4 together . . . I guess I am going to have to learn to be patient! I am very excited that you feel this set is some of your best work. Big hugs!
