Next Mini on Deck
|QCon Mini Swap Sneak|
The palette feels familiar wouldn't you say? A little bit like the mini from my last post I'd say. I love how things spill out and overlap. Creative connections are the best.
This one is on my FAL Q1 goal list and I'm kicking it up to top priority linking up with Elm Street Quilts for February "One Monthly Goal" My OMG goal is to quilt, bind and label the mini.
Having the opportunity to meet and swap minis in person was a really fun part of participating last year. Last year was the first time and now that the word is out, I'm wondering if more people are going to do it. Here's a picture from MQG QuiltConEast 2017 in Savannah GA.

I blogged about making it in the POST but I don't think I shared the swapping smiles on the blog.
Three weeks from now I'll be in Pasadena at QuiltCon. I've ordered a batch of buttons to hand out. Not sure how much pin trading there will be but I decided that they are still fun to have just in case someone wants one or two!
Although I'm excited and honored to have my Reflections quilt displayed in the Bee/Group category, it makes me a little nervous and insecure too. It's amazing and I love it but there is still the element of being judged by viewers. Not everything is for everybody and I get that. Putting yourself out there is still worth the risk and I hope that I continue to feel that way. PIQF and Road to California are shows that I haven't gathered enough courage to enter but plan to in 2018.
Happy Stitching, Karen
