I had difficulty getting good photos to show the quilting. I think it had something to do with the reflection of all the snow and that the thread matched the fabric.
This is the borders.
I gave it a lot of thought and have decided not to apply for the jury process this year. The deadline is much too soon. I want to enjoy simply creating before subjecting myself to the stress of a jury process. What I've decided to do is mark on my calendar the approximate dates for different art juries next year. It will be a list I can look through now and then. Each time I create something I can look through the list to decide if what I've created would be a good candidate for a jury. If I think my creation qualifies then I will set it aside to wait for the application time.
