Some good news and some plans

Fabulous news for me.  My quilt, "Dixon Family Escapades", has been accepted into the Lancaster show in March.    I made this quilt a few years ago for Debra Gabel's book, Quilt Blocks Across America.  I simply made blocks for every state my husband and I have visited.  The quilt was photographed for the book and displayed in the local Nimble Fingers Quilt Guild show in 2010, but has never been shown in a larger show.  Alas, the book is out of print now and there are only a few copies left on Amazon.  

In 2012, I made 189 charity quilts and over 200 preemie quilts.  This year, I hope to make less of each and spend more time working on my creativity.  I'm am enjoying my retirement.   So my next challenge is to get a quilt in the Sacred Threads Biennial Exhibition.  I finally have a design.   It is based on a picture I took of a dome in the Washington National Cathedral in 2011.  Here's the picture:

And, here's my design inspired by this picture:

I'm going to attempt to paper piece it.
