I went for it. I entered this quilt into the Madison Quilt Expo Quilt Contest.
When I look at their gallery of past winners, I realize that it's a major long shot that they'll even let me in the contest. All of the quilts shown there are super detailed, highly patterned and technically brilliant.
But I figured, as I often do: What the hell.
|The self addressed stamped envelope looks like this, too. That way I won't be so sad when they send me the rejection letter.|
I had to send in five bucks, a completed entry form, a SASE and two photographs, one whole quilt and one detail shot. So, yes, I made quilted envelopes. Now I wish that I had made them out of denim. Maybe next time.
