Blogger’s Quilt Festival :: Spring 2014

It's time for another Blogger's Quilt Festival. This time, I'm not submitting any modern quilt, but my latest art quilt - 'She's a wildflower'.
The quilt is based on the graphic of a very talented Gracjana Zielinska (of course with her permission). Initially, I made the quilt for the 'Mother Nature' contest at Prague Patchwork Meeting, which took place in April this year. The quilt won a 4th prize there. 
In addition (inspired by comment #49 from Vickie under the post with details of the quilt), I submitted the quilt to International Quilt Festival in Houston (exhibit 'In full bloom'). I didn't really counted that it would be accepted, but hey, if you don't try, you will never know. 
And it was accepted! You can imagine how proud I was reading the email, knowing, that my quilt will be displayed during such a big quilt show (it's the second art quilt I've made in my life). So, for all those, who plan to attend Houston Quilt Festival in October/November and will see my quilt, let me know wtaht you think about it :) 

Przyszedl czas na kolejny Blogger's Quilt Festival. Nic nowego nowoczesnego nie mam, wiec zglaszam moja Dziewczyne z Kwiatami. Historie jej powstanie znacie; udalo jej sie zajac #4 miejsce w konkursie na wystawie w Pradze w kwietniu, a na dodatek zgosilam ja do udzialu w wystawie tematycznej podczas International Quilt Festival w Houston, ktory odbedzie sie na przelomie pazdziernika i listopada. Wielkich nadziei nie mialam, ze zostanie przyjeta, w koncu Houston to ogromna wystawa, gdzie wystawiaja sie ci najlepsi, doswiedczeni, szyjacy od lat. Wiadomo... trzymalam kciuki i czekalam do poczatku maja na maila z decyzja. Dla mnie samo wystawienie sie w Houston to prestiz (o ocenie sedziego juz nie wspomne, bo na wiele podczas oceniania nie licze). Trzeba tez pamietac, ze to dopiero moj drugi 'art quilt' (no, raczej 'pictorial quilt'). 
Co sie okazalo... dostala sie :) Bedzie wisiala jako czesc wystawy tematycznej 'In full bloom' ('W pelnym rozkwicie'). Dumna z niej jestem wielce ;)

W Blogger's Quilt Festival dodaje ja w kategorii 'Art Quilt' (TUTAJ jest linky z tej kategorii). Kazda kategoria ma swoje oddzielne linky (lista kategorii z linkami jest na samym dole postu o BQF).

Miedzy 16-23 maja linky sa otwarte i mozna w komentarzach nominowac quilty do kategorii 'Viewer's choice' (wybor publicznosci). 24-29 maja bedzie glosowanie, a na koniec miesiaca beda podane wyniki. 
Co sie zmienlo tym razem w BQF to to, ze nie ma podpisow pod zgloszonymi quiltami i linky przeladowuje sie automatycznie przy kazdej wizycie zmieniajac ulozenie quiltow.

I'm adding it to 'Art Quilt' linky in Blogger's Quilt Festival.

Schedule of events :
May 16-23 – Linky’s Open & Nominate for Viewer’s Choice
May 24-29 – Vote for favorites in each of the categories (links to each category below)
