I am trying to complete “View from the Park”, which I plan to enter into the Tactile Architecture exhibit with the International Quilt Festival in Houston. The due date for entries is February 20th.
What you see in the piece are flat head straight pins, which are being removed as I work in those areas.
I have wanted to make a piece for this exhibit for several years now, as I enjoy seeing the exhibition so much. I still have to finish machine quilting and appliqueing.

I just learned that Lyric Kinard keeps a list of exhibit entries information for shows, including the entry due date, shipping/show dates, and email address or web site for obtaining the entry form.
If you show your work, you’ll want to check Lyric’s site regularly!
Here’s the page:
Another site to check regularly for fiber art entries is: http://fiberartcalls.blogspot.com/
And, I just learned of Michelle Verbeek’s at: http://www.michelleverbeeck.com/artcall.htm
