No use wondering anymore

This was in my email box when I got home from New York City.  In triplicate.

Dear Elizabeth,

Thank you for submitting your entry, Come A-Round, to be considered by the jury for the 2012 Road to California Quilters’ Showcase. We regret that we are unable to include your entry in this year’s show.

The amount of time available for the judging of quilt entries and the space limitation for display means that not all the entries submitted can be exhibited. A three-member jury’s task is to select a display of quilts in a wide variety of patterns and styles for the Showcase.

The jurors appreciated the time and effort you took to enter our show and hope that you will consider entering again in future years. Thank you for your participation.

Person Who Sends Out These Letters


My only snarky comment over all my quilts being rejected is the “sincerely” tag at the bottom: *Yeah, right.*

Okay.  I’m over it.  I guess for a rejection letter, this one isn’t too bad.  I know this show prefers heavily quilted quilts, and I just can’t bring myself to do that.  And it is a high quality show, and I have had several quilts in it already, so I guess it just wasn’t my turn.

Sigh.  I had a great time in New York, saw a lot of sights including TWO quilt shops.  Photos to follow in the next few days.  Now to finish unpacking.

  1. What?? Well, I’m coming to the show regardless, but it would have been so much better to see your quilts hanging there. I just don’t get it…

    Glad you had a great time in NYC. I can hardly wait to read all about it and see your pics!
