Farrago A Go

It was with great delight that I received the news earlier today from IQF (International Quilt Festival): Farrago has been juried into the 2012 O Canada traveling exhibit! It is one of 26 quilts selected from across Canada to be shown in Cincinnati, Long Beach and Houston before returning home in November.
This is the same quilt which made it to the semi-finals last year at the AQS show in Paducah, KY and to the finals at the New York State of Mind exhibit at the Fenimore Art Museum in Cooperstown, New York. (Always a bridesmaid :) This makes three times that one of my quilts has been selected to be part of this O Canada special exhibit, now in its 4th year. It's an incredible honour to have your quilts shown so far from home, with a little tag attached proudly reading "Amherst, Nova Scotia".
