Well, not only did it get accepted they also asked me if they could make cards with a picture of my quilt on the front. I was very honoured to be asked and of course I said yes! ..so I sent the quilt out to them to be photographed and yesterday these cards came in the post.
Tonight I will take the quilt to the drop-off point, a quiltshop in Dordrecht, and from there it will go to the exhibition which starts tomorrow in three weeks. Here it is ready to go.
I will leave you with a few pictures from the Festival of Quilts, Birmingham.
Here is Anco Brouwers being interviewed by Luana Rubin, check out her channel on youtube here, she has lots of videos of several quilt shows.
This I believe was the Best of Show, and well deserved!
those roses are so beautifully made, they look so realistic!
shame I couldn't get the entire quilt in the picture, also forgot to see who the maker was, sorry..
