I made it into Houston!!!!!!!!

Recommended Posts

I am so excited!!!! The riding jacket I made for my daughter, Danielle, got juried into Houston!! It has done well at the other national shows taking 1st place in 5 out of 6 shows (it took a 2nd place in the 6th show).  It also took Best of Show garment at Machine Quilters Exposition West last fall and has won $1,850 ( but it did cost $800 in crystals and leather  to make!)  It has won back its making cost!  I am over the moon just getting juried into Houston.  I have never been to that show.  I told my husband if I got notified that I was a winner we WERE going to go to the awards show no matter what!  They inform you if you win something in September and the show is not until November.  What a happy day!!post-6134-0-51844200-1373986093_thumb.jpg

Wonderful news! Your jackets are fabulous. I'm not surprised you got in. They know good stuff when they see it.  Hoping you win a ribbon.

Your jackets are so beautiful-- I can't believe that beautiful riding jacket for your daughter is leather!!

You have some amazing awesome skills.

I just wish Houston was not so far away from me. It is a 16 hour drive or a $400 plane ticket! I am really yearning to go!

So excited for you!!! Better be quick with making the arrangements--or you might look into any bus tours--that is what I did when I went to Paducah this spring. For some reason I think there might be someone in your area of Iowa that does quilting bus tours--maybe Johnston?? I will do some more checking for you.
