Yeah!

I received word that my quilt Orion Odyssey was accepted in the "Thread Tails and Vapor Trails" quilt exhibit celebrating the 100th anniversary of naval aviation.

I knew you would want to hear the news since so many of you followed the process of creating the quilt here on my blog -- and left so many great comments!

I am honored to be included in this exciting event and quite relieved. That quilt was more challenging than I had anticipated, so now all that struggle seems worth it. I'll include updates about where you might be able to see the exhibit in the future.

Plus, there is a gala year-end event in DC on December 3, 2011. I've got it on my calendar!

In the mean time, here is one more picture of my inspiration.
