The Top 20 are going to Houston :D :D :D :D in the Quilt Alliance booth, but still....

Hey Sue, If I am not mistaken, one of those beautiful top 20 quilts was yours. I posted the following on the Mug Rug thread the day they appeared in the Daily Blog. I think you were still traveling and might have missed it.

"Sue, Congratulations on being a Quilt Alliance contest winner. How great! Didn't at least one of that flock of 20 black birds fly off onto someone's Mug Rug. As I recall, there were "4 and 20 blackbirds baked in a (that) pie". If one of them happens to fly my way, you'll be the next to recieve a redition of my developing skills creating shore birds on a mug rug. Take your time on this. I have a few deadlines to meet before I can get to this one."

I was looking for that post to include the link here but couldn't find it. I'll look again and if I find it I will post again here. Great job on that quilt

I got to see Mary Kay's winner today in Herndon VA, it's beautiful!

Repeat from a different thread:

I just spent the day at the Quilt Alliance conference where the theme of the day was the importance of documentation.
We watched as Luann Rubin recorded a QSOS interview with Jinny Beyer (it was filmed and may appear on the QA website in the future), heard a keynote address from Janneken Smucker (Graduate Curatorial Assistant for the International Quilt Study Center at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln), listened to a panel discussion (Curators Reveal How They Solve the Mysteries of Unlabeled Quilts and What They Wish Every Quilt Could Tell Them) and had great hands-on classes on label making, digital photography, self-publishing, and social media for quilters.


Then we got to see the Sacred Threads quilt show.

Now I"m going to look up Ann's quilt to see if I saw them. Seeing the winners in person was amazing. Someone else just told us she had an entry, but I can't remember her name...can see her face in my mind. Does anyone remember?

The 2013 Gallery for the Quilt Alliance theme "Twenty" is up. Mine is #83. I see a beauty by Mary Kay Davis, too. Are there any other TQS members represented here? If so, please let us know.

Many quilters recorded their Artist's Statement and were allowed more words than seen below the quilt. That was fun!

Members can vote for their favorite, but so far I haven't seen a link to do so, as this gallery was just posted today.
