Arbol de Vida makes the cut!

Honestly, I had not been worried about this quilt being accepted until I spoke with several award winning quilters I know who got rejections. I was so surprised hearing that, I started to get a little nervous. I guess it’s always good being humbled, puts things in perspective. I was very relieved when I saw the big envelope from IQA in the mail box. Now let’s hope the judges like it.
