Mark your calendars and break out your sewing machines! I’m thrilled to share that we have just posted the exhibit particulars for our new special exhibit debuting this fall in Houston, It’s Raining Cats and Dogs! This juried exhibit will accompany our Festival Pet Project where once again fabric postcards made and donated by animal lovers worldwide will sell for $20 each, benefiting Friends For Life, Houston’s premier no-kill animal shelter and rescue program.
What about making a pet-themed quilt for this exhibit and some pet-themed fabric postcards to benefit homeless animals?
It’s Raining Cats and Dogs will premiere at International Quilt Market and Festival, October 26–November 3, 2013. Quilts must be a minimum of 25″ x 25″ in size, and you can find out all of the nitty-gritty details by clicking this link.
On a completely unrelated note, I have an extra copy of this fantastic quilting book by the extremely talented Yoko Saito of Japan:
With 29 projects featuring traditional patchwork designs, beautiful hand stitching, and muted fabrics in taupe and sepia, this book isn’t just pretty to flip through, but you’ll find a project (…or two or three) that you will want to create.
Just answer the following question and I will randomly select a book winner in the next few days!
Question: What was the zaniest idea you have ever had for a quilt? Was it a 3D quilt, a quilt that was so large it took you twenty years to complete, or perhaps a baby quilt done in whacky colors? Did you actually complete your zany quilt idea or are you still mulling it over? (And if you have completed your zany quilt idea and have a picture of it online, be sure to include a link in your comment!)
