Over The Moon!!

  Reap the Whirlwind, 2010 
By Beverly Hart

Can I just say I am excited beyond belief??  Not only did my wholecloth pieced Reap the Whirlwind get juried into AQuA's special exhibit at PIQF, the juror chose it for the image on the postcard!!  I've been doing a happy dance since last night when I found out, I'm surprised I slept at all!

AQuA is a fairly large group, with lots of very talented artists.  To have my piece chosen for the card is absolutely incredible to me.

Here's a detail shot-


It rather boggles my mind that the quilting is what makes this piece, and I actually enjoyed doing it.  Two years ago, I'd have been stressed beyond belief.  Just goes to show, it's all about the practice, practice, practice.  That, and making all those pieces for the crap quota.

It has  been a GOOD weekend on the quilt front!  I got started on the quilting for my IT! piece, and get this news!

Bev, I most certainly understand about not sleeping because you feel so great over your achievement! Congratulations on the quilt and being a cover woman!

Congratulations! This is a great quilt. The subject is so timely and will probably be a great period piece one day in the future.

Congratulations. I know how exciting this honor is from prior AQuA experience. What a perfect depiction of that vista in Spanish Fork canyon in spring. I've been thinking of doing a quilt from my winter photos of that same area--the turbines are really striking as they appear after the narrow canyon. Kudos.
