As I was trying to find pieces that were accepted into QuiltCon, many of the owner's of the accepted quilts and commenters carried on and on how us rejected people should feel about our rejections. Big mistake! Your rambling doesn't make us feel any better. In fact it makes it worse. Who are you to say our feelings are not valid or appropriate?
Don't say "you should be proud of your rejected work". Where did I say I wasn't proud of my work?
Don't say "don't give up". Where did I say I was giving up and what exactly do you mean by giving up?
How dare you make any assumptions or judgments on how I feel. It is like going to a funeral and saying they were so sick and suffering I am sure they are in a better place. How do you know they are in a better place? Do you think that is comforting to someone who just lost a loved one? Just say you are sorry and stop.
I know there were a lot of entries, but from what I have seen if you didn't make a wall hanging with solid fabrics you had no chance at all getting in. Maybe they should change the name to WallCon. Why are you permitted to submit a piece that is 480" around, but all they are going to accept is wall hangings?
I am committed to going and I plan on having a great time exploring Austin. I will be bringing my Moda Halloween quilt, carrying it around where ever I go, and show anyone who asks to see it. Feel free to join my mobile quilt exhibit.
I did get 2/3 of my flannel quilt sewn together, but I turned one 4 block by 4 block section around. I have no idea how that happened. It is not a big deal and I wasn't going to tear it apart so it is what it is. My siblings won't care and it is not being judged by the quilt police.
I need to put a label on a baby quilt I had in my stash for a fellow who just had their third child.
Here is the quilt. It is made with prints! Oh the horror!
