The Quilt Show is Back!

I think I mentioned a couple of months ago that the annual Quilt and Stitch Show is back on here in Dubai. Well, I sent in pictures of two of my big framed pieces, the American Flag Quilt and my first-ever cross-stitching. Last week they finally got back to me to say that I've been accepted into the contest! Woohoo!

I entered the show last year with my Teddy Bear Quilt, which unfortunately didn't win. I was still so excited to be part of the show, and I'm going into it with the same attitude this time too.

I've been busy this week getting ready: they have a lot of requirements, including making sure everything is labeled, in a seal-able bag (urgh, finding bags that were wide enough was hard!), and printing out all the forms and pictures.

The contest started this weekend and will continue for a week. There's no judging - the viewing public gets to vote for their favorites in each category. I really wish there was online voting! That would be amazing.

So here are the pieces I've entered:

The American Flag Quilt, finished last year
My very first cross-stitching, a lovely verse from the Quran in Arabic
I'm so excited! Wish me luck :D
