QuiltCon 2015
QuiltCon 2015


Well, neither of my quilt submissions were selected for QuiltCon (details can be found in my QuiltCon submission post). With over 1,350 submissions, this isn’t too surprising. I am still very excited to attend QuiltCon in February; I hope to see you there!

Did you get a quilt accepted into the show?

    Awww such a shame of love both these quilts xxx

  2. I’m sorry to hear that! You should at least know that those stunning quilts are loved on the blogosphere!

  3. Renee says:

    But these quilts are so cool, especially the synesthetic alphabet! And they seem modern. Well, how about a cup of tea at our pity party and later we can celebrate for the friends that did get a quilt in?

    That’s crazy!! I’m shaking my head in disbelief.

  5. Nicole says:

    I FEEL YOUR PAIN! Mine was a no go as well. Which is extra stinky because it was the pastel fabric challenge. I thought all of those would get in. GRRRRR.

    And again, I love the synesthesia one.

  6. sfredett says:

    Nope. 😀 That just means I don’t need to clean the cat fur off it. Although, it’ll be interesting to see who does get in….and if there’s any correlation to “followship”…. but maybe that’s just my inner cynic talking. I love both your quilts!

  7. True bummer! In true honesty, I am completely shocked neither of these made it in. They are wonderfully done and great designs… I am really shocked they didn’t make it in. I hope that doesn’t hinder you on thinking these are fantasmatic… because they really are!

  8. Judy says:

    I have to say I am a little shocked, Yvonne! Both quilts are so beautiful! I’ll join you and Renee at that tea party. Off Course didn’t make it in either. If I lived closer, I’d join you and Renee at that pity party 🙂 Would it help to know that Victoria Findlay Wolfe submitted quilts three years running to Houston and was rejected? This post really helped me put ‘rejection’ into perspective http://www.bumblebeansinc.blogspot.com/2014/11/festival-wrap-up.html.

    That is a bummer, I love your Synesthetic Alphabet.

  10. Audrey says:

    That’s just silly! 🙁

  11. Jasmine says:

    That is disappointing. I thought your photos (and quilts) were great

  12. lisa says:

    Only because I’m not a judge. I like them both, but the one on the right is one of the most impressive I’ve seen this year.

  13. DeborahGun says:

    Sorry they didn’t get accepted, but they are both completely amazing quilts xx

  14. I think the alphabet one is so cool..it’s a shame it didn’t make it in. It will be interesting to see the ones that do.

  15. Joanna says:

    At least you’re in good company; I’ve seen a lot of great modern quilts that have been rejected! Did they give a specific reason or was it just a “nope”? I’m honestly surprised the Synesthetic Alphabet didn’t make it in because I think the whole reason of that quilt is amazing and puts some meaning into the designs chosen for quilt making.

  16. quiltingmod says:

    Sorry, but I’ll see you there, and would love to meet up. It’s a subjective thing. You’re still awesome. Good for you submitting. I didn’t have anything suitable finished in time.

  17. So sorry you didn’t make the cut but well done you on submitting in the first place!

  18. Sorry you were disappointed, Yvonne. Both of your quilts are great and very modern. It’s quite obvious we all love them! Hope you have a good time at QuiltCon anyways!

  19. 1350 submissions! Yikes!
    I have never entered a quilt in a show. Yes, I know. I should. One day.

  20. Ruth says:

    It is a bummer, of the two I thought Synesthetic Alphabet would definitely get in. I had a quilt not make it into a display this year and I was surprised at how disappointed I was. Still onwards to the next one!

  21. Cheryl says:

    I am very surprised your quilts did not make it in, they are absolutely beautiful and what I would define as “modern”.

  22. But you tried! You have more moxie than a lot of people!!! I love your quilts. They have so much movement and spirit!

  23. Liz says:

    That’s too bad. I’ve seen a few posts from other bloggers lamenting their quilts that were rejected as well. Everybody has such amazing work, I’m guessing the acceptance just hinges on their definition of ‘modern quilts’. Even though you didn’t get into the show, at least you know how much your work is appreciated by all of us! And, hopefully, this won’t discourage you from future entries!

  24. Jan O says:

    Wow, I thought for sure both of yours would get in. It’ll be interesting to see what they chose. Mine didn’t get in either.

  25. Aileen says:

    I have to say I’m totally shocked. The synasthetic alphabet quilt is one of the most amazing and beautiful quilts I’ve ever seen.

  26. patty says:

    I got three rejections. Your quilts are stunning! Who in the heck did get in if we didn’t?

  27. kittywilkin says:

    I didn’t even submit a quilt. I just don’t have the sewing time. I’m excited to meet you at QuiltCon, though, and see what quilts DID get in!

  28. sally says:

    Bummer, but they are both amazing quilts. I imagine it must have been incredibly difficult to choose. I’m sure it will still be an amazing experience to go along, and I hope you enter again next year.

  29. Darn, you KNOW I was hoping the orange was in! They are still super awesome!

  30. Beth says:

    That is a bummer. I love both of them and think they’re inspiring. That’s the problem working in a creative field, everything is subjective. Just keep doing what you do and have faith in it because it is excellent.

I really appreciate the time and thought you take to comment, and I look forward to conversing with you. :)
