DesMoines !!!!

when I came home from a holiday today, there was a very nice letter in my mailbox. They wrote: Congratulations! The jury has accepted your entry, Tango, for further consideration in the AQS Quilt Show & Contest in Des Moines, Iowa, October 6-9, 2010. 
They have accepted a total of 190 quilts from 40 states and 6 other countries, so I'm excited. I'm in the semifinal as they say. I'm doing the happy dance here now :-)

Da jeg kom hjem fra en liten ferietur i dag, fant jeg et hyggelig brev i postkassa. Der sto det: Gratulerer! Jutyen har akseptert din deltagelse av Tango til videre bedømming i AQS Quilt Show and Contest i Des Moines, Iowa 6.-9. oktober 2010. De har akseptert tilsammen190 quilter fra 40 stater i USA og 6 andre land, så jeg er overlykkelig. Jeg er i semifinalen som de sa, og danser gledesdanser her nå :-)


  1. congratulations Bente!! I hope I'll be able to travel to see it. Des Moines is not far from Davenport but I think there is a quilt retreat that I have already signed up for that weekend. Your quilt is art....unbelieveable. Did you use Marilyn Belford's technique?? just curious. good luck and I hope you win a blue best of show!!! Terre Klipsch

  2. Thank you so much to both of you! Yes, it's Marilyn Belford's technique. She's a great teacher! I hope someone who visit my blog will go to Des Moines and take some pictures they can send me :-)

  3. If I go to Des Moines, you can bet I'll take a ton of pics----and a ton more of YOUR beautiful quilt!

  4. Gratulerer! SÅ flott. Men så er også quilten fantastisk flott. Såg den i B'ham i fjor på denne tid. Lukke til!
