Great news

Hi friends!

I have great news to tell you!! My Dear Jane quilt has been selected for the exhibition 
"Pour l'amour du Fil" in Nantes, France. As probably DJ fans know, this year is the 150th anniversary of the original DJ Quilt by Jane Stickle. For this event the original DJ will travel to France with Brenda Papadakis, the book author. The organizers wanted to show 100 DJ quilts from all over the world. I sent my registration and surprise, surprise..... my quilt was selected!!!! I'm very excited and proud.
Today I'll sew some hangers on it (I didn't before as a kind of avoiding bad luck), my label and then go to the post office to send it to France.

Here some pictures of my ANTICICLONE DEAR JANE.

Once there I will take tons of pictures from all the fantastic quilts and post them.
My week will be great, hope the same for you.
