So excited!

I am so thrilled to announce that my quilt, "Construction: Concrete and Stone" was accepted into Tactile Architecture 2008: Modern Art Quilts with Architectural Themes.

Deborah Boschert Construction Concrete and Stone

Tactile Architecture is an annual juried show that debuts as a special exhibit at Quilt Festival in Houston. I'm not sure how many years it's been going on, but I was so inspired and impressed by the exhibit in 2007 and 2006 when I was in Houston.

The quilt was also accepted in a show that will be in the Texas state capitol building over Memorial Day weekend. It's called Fiber Art: Deep in the Art of Texas. I packaged it up today and a friend is driving it down to Austin.

The Tactile Architecture show will travel to other IQA shows through 2008 and 2009. Maybe you'll have an opportunity to see it.

I am so thankful for my fiber friends here in Texas and the Frayed Edges and many many blogging friends. The inspiration, enthusiasm, support, encouragement and camaraderie from all of them is a big part of making these exciting opportunities a reality. So, thank YOU!

I love the quilt with the "stones" in the composition. The design and colors work really well together. I would have liked to been in Denton... close but not close enough! ~Sharon (in Houston)
