Happy dance!

My JQ was the first piece I ever entered into a juried competition and with probable good cause it was rejected. However, I was NOT daunted and so with some trepidation, I sent off my piece Dance! to be juried into PIQF . I got the FAT envelope back today! Whoot, whoot! I am dancing! I had been thinking of doing some others along this line and now I am pretty sure I will. I know it is not Houston or Paducah, but it is a nice start for me. I was not planning on attending so if anyone goes and sees it, please take a picture for me.

PIQF is Pacific International Quilt Festival in Santa Clara, CA.

I saw your post on the QA list and had to check out your JQ. It is really great! Congratulations on your acceptance into PIQF-I've never tried a juried show. Thanks to you and a few others, I may just start.

The movement you've achieved in the lines of the women and the "ribbons" is really great. I love this piece! /jill

Congrats! That is a beautiful piece; I love it! But what is PIQF? There are so many shows, I think I need the remedial course in quilt shows!
