New frontier blown.
Neil Armstrong famous words: «That's one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind».

I just did the opposite. For others it might be nothing, but to me it vas a big step into the unknown. I have passed a new frontier. Frightening.....

I have entered my first quilt competition!

When I first reed the terms and conditions in a Quilt magacine it never crossed my mind I would enter. But during a conversation with a former college, an idea hit my mind. Back in my car I made some sketches. From that moment on I could not stop thinking about it. Therefore I decided to do it.
I have been working on this project for months. The process from idea to a completed quilt is serially hard work. And now it is done.
I am not sure how the rules are, therefore I would not tell any more or show you pictures yet Not even a sneak peak. But I do have a question to you all.

Do you tell the person who set you on the idea in the first place, or do you keep quiet?

I would thank the person for the motivation and encouragement. Maybe give them a shout out on the quilt label.

I think it's okay to say you were inspired by something someone said, but I think it's equally alright not to say anything at all, since the idea developed in your mind and was completed by your hands.
