GSQA Meeting from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

GSQA Opportunity Quilt
This lucky gal has been doing so many quilty things lately! I don't know how July became the quilt travel month for me, but wow! I'm having fun. Of course, I'll have to settle down and get busy with our quilt show, which is on Sept. 28th. In other words, the heavy lifting is about to begin. 

This travel was to attend the GSQA meeting in Brandon, Mississippi, with Lori, a friend who is about to become the new GSQA president. Her term begins in January.

I truly hope that this pans out and I am able to give more lectures and workshops in our region.  Although I understand they are difficult to get into, I think I'd like to eventually teach at a show like AQS or QuiltCon.

GSQA Show Entries from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

Today was the deadline to enter quilts into the Gulf States Quilting Association biennial show. So yesterday I entered three modern quilts. That's what I'm counting as my finish this week. Although I did get some sewing done, nothing is complete.

I planned to enter five quilts, which is the limit, but decided that two of the quilts are too large. I can't afford all of the costs of entering shows. The two large quilts are too heavy for standard mail and won't fit into the flat rate box with the quilts that are going.
Modern ...
