Quilters Accountability week 15

I wish I could say I've been sewing a lot - but alas - that will just have to wait till next month. Instead I have been ohhing and ahhing over some GORGEOUS Quilts of Valor for the Warrior games! Wrangler man asked why I just didn't just store them, rather than photograph each one. I was truly shocked at any suggestion of not checking out EACH quilt. I mean - really!!!
`
I have been asked to be a Celebrity Quilt Judge - can you believe it? Every year http://www.firehousequilts.org/ Firehouse Quilts has a quilt show to raise funds for their non profit group. They asked if I would come and be a celebrity judge at the show.

`
You can enter a quilt if you want - and come visit. If anyone comes to Colorado - I will be there on the 16th I think it is, I would love to meet you. And then you can totally laugh at my celebrityness. What do you want to bet - no one knows who I am *giggle*
`
I am excited though - I think it will be fun!!
`
Speaking of celebrities - all of my boys entered a quilt in MQX ( www.mqxshow.com) in the youth category - and they all took a place!!! 2nd, 3rd, and 5th. Not too bad!!
`
We had a swim meet this last weekend and my middle son won 3rd place High Point Swimmer.
`
So it has been a good week all around, other than the no sewing thing. We may have to remedy that this weekend if at all possible!!!

Such a great post Alycia!
I don't know where to begin---
I agree with the viewing of quilts! How could you pass up checking each one out?!!?
And a quilt judge?? Wooo-hooo! You have a reputable knowledge base of quilts! Have fun.
And finally, congrats on all your boys' accomplishments :0) Such a great teacher you are :0)

I am impressed, quilt judge, childre with ribions, and the tireing duty of checking out ALL the quilts. LOL

Does this mean when I finally meet you in person that I am going to have to bow at your feet and fawn all over you? I can bring my camera and take all kinds of stealth pictures of you....like the paperazzi....A real CELEBRITY! Wow!

Personally though, judging a quilt show would be almost as bad as judging a horse show with all my neighbors kids riding in it....Can you imagine? LOL

I am so tickled for your boys. You have quite the talented family! I don't in the least bit feel sorry for you having to check out all those quilts. I would do the same....LOL, and the Hunter would say the same thing as Wrangler Man!

Quilting sure is taking a back seat right now with a lot of us!

Keep up the great work!

Oh my!!! So many quilts to open and check out. I know you 'fell behind' due to the large number but I haven't seen one I sent about 2 weeks ago - a RWB Kaleidoscope - kinda wild. ???? Hope that it made it to Kersey!
