But that feeling was nothing compared to the crazy, over-the-moon, little-kid-like excitement I felt when I rounded the corner at the show and saw my quilt hanging there. My quilt! I can't even express how excited/anxious/scared/humbled I felt (and still feel).
|That's my quilt - the red one!|
Dudes—I felt like an artist! I've never felt like that about anything I've made (I mean, not since I was four year old and drew what I still feel is one of the best Crayola renderings of a "family-under-blue-sky-by-house-with-chimney" in existence to date).
Anyway, here is my "Stars in Stripes" quilt, pieced and designed by yours truly, and quilted by the inimitable Angela Walters.
