Time sure gets away from me! The deadline for sending quilts to QuiltCon is fast approaching so I spent time this week getting my dear little Starry Eyed baby ready to go. I wish I were going too, but that's another story that I already shared here.
Anyway, there was lots to do to make sure my quilt can be hung and will come back safe and sound.
I used Jacquie Gering's quilt sleeve tutorial since that's what the MQG recommended. Super easy.
Then I sweet-talked my husband into installing a little hanging system in our bedroom so I could test the sleeve and hang the quilt to try to get some of the creases out. I like it so much that I think I'll have him move the set-up out to our living room. We need a quilt on display all the time, methinks. :)
Lastly, I designed a label and applied it to my quilt using Artists Transfer Paper (TAP) and HeatnBond Ultrabond. When the quilt comes back and I start using and washing it, I'll probably hand stitch the label down just to be safe. But for now it's not going anywhere.
Now I just need to box it up and put it in the mail. Eeeek! I'm so nervous that I entered Starry Eyed into the juried portion of the show. Part of me wants to hear what the judges think but most of me is too scared to find out. Maybe I'll never open the letter or email or however they send it. I really love my quilt and I did my very best on the execution. Isn't that all that matters?
Moving right along... now you get to show what you made this week because it's Show Off Saturday.
Remember, if you decide to post your picture(s) online (like on facebook, flickr, or your blog) the linky page will let you enter a link to the page where it is so we can visit it. If it's not posted online yet, you may skip that part and upload a picture from your computer. We all can't wait to see!
Don't forget, the most clicked project will be spotlighted here next Friday - just like Stephanie's Pretty 'First Time' Paper Piecing (don't worry Stephanie, we all loved it).
I would love it if you shared our linky party on your blog... here's a button to make it easy.
And don't forget to share the love and visit some of the other fun blogs in the party.
Please, no links to items for sale. Those links will be deleted. Thank you!
