The Juggler accepted into AQS Chattanooga

My quilt, The Juggler, was accepted into the AQS Chattanooga quilt show. What an honor!

Encouraged by a guild program given by the Choo Choo Quilters earlier this year called, "How to Get Over your Bad Self and Enter a Quilt Show," and a successful showing at our 2015 Guild Challenge, I thought I'd try to see if The Juggler could make the cut. I am so very pleased that the AQS jury found it worthy of being displayed this September in Chattanooga along side the work of other talented and accomplished quilters.

The process behind the making of The Juggler can be found in two blog posts here and the quilting process is here. And, believe it or not, it started with a Halloween panel [the Guild Challenge was called "Beyond the Panel"] from StudioE Fabrics.

Remnants of the mummies and pumpkins from the original fabric panel can be seen in this close-up.

If you are in the Chattanooga area September 14-17, stop in and see all the wonderful quilts that will be on display at AQS QuiltWeek Chattanooga—including The Juggler. Look at the art of quiltmaking in a whole new way.
