Prepping for Houston

Man.. it takes a long time to prepare all the paperwork, pics, CDs, etc for submission to IQA Houston. I'm submitting 2 pieces. When submitting to Houston... all the edges of the quilt are required to be shown.... so know there is NO black border on either of these... just a black surface on which the quilts are photographed.

'Will be mid July before the show is juried. The painted surface category is perhaps the most competitive there is.. so we'll see. Fingers crossed.

Thanks Lori.... this is a very cool but competitive category. This is really an international category... In 2008, my first year to enter, 1st and 2nd place went to Australia. I was thrilled to get 3rd. In 2009, I rec'd 3rd for another piece with the french couple team taking 2nd.
