Ah, Well...

Maybe next time. My entry, "Picked for the Ripening", wasn't selected for The 2010 Quilting Arts calendar...but the subject matter (tomatoes) was popular. I'm looking forward to actually seeing the pieces. The tricky bit with entering a 12" square piece using 8"x10" photographs (that's right -- no e-mailed images) is that colour is really an issue. While I did my best with the photography, it could be that it isn't going to work in a glossy calendar.

The good news is -- it's the perfect size for a donation to the 2009 SAQA auction -- so next week I'll be putting a sleeve on it and sending it out.

Now I must away -- I'm off to Crossfield to watch sheep shearing today!

I love your tomato quilt! The photos, writing, layout, mixed techniques....
I've been thinking a lot about tomatoes too for crazy quilting...my DH grew so many of them last year, and I spent so much time canning them, that I still have them on my brain!!
