Funny story -
I had taken the quilt top to the local quilt shop to show the staff. The next morning, I looked in my sewing room and didn't see it. I thought that I had left it at the quilt shop and called them from work - they couldn't find it. I panicked - where was it!!
When I got home I found it on the design wall - I had put it back up on the wall and hadn't looked at the wall behind me when I looked in the sewing room. I felt like an idiot when I called the store to tell them that I had found it - but I HAD found it - ;)).
At the County Fair -
Once again they didn't find the hanging sleeve -
And put it on the floor of a glass case -
It was the last time I entered anything in the County Fair - ;))
Entered in a local quilt show - January 1998
