Wildly excited

I have a not-very-secret secret to share... I actually have been sitting on this for a few days because I wanted to make sure that I wasn't imagining it.  It's been real for about a week now, so I'm pretty sure now that it's really really real. 

I'm tickled pink to have my Two Margaritas (Kona Challenge) quilt accepted into the Modern Quilt Guild Showcase 2012 in Houston.  Wooo!  After the exhibit, it will join the traveling show that continues into 2013.  A special thanks to Rhonda for encouraging me to submit it. 

I guess I have until September to make something new to hang on my office wall.  I don't think I can bear to have it empty again after I've had my quilt there. 

33 quilts were selected for this show... are you curious?  I'm so curious.  I wish I could make it there in person to see them all.  When a couple of blog posts popped up in my reader about other quilts that got accepted, my fingers started to twitch. Hello, Google.  I'm pretty much in awe of these awesome quilts (mine should maybe go in a corner somewhere!):

Rossie's Kelp Quilt for MidModBee
Alison's Bits & Ripples Quilt via The Occasional Pin, which won the Project Modern Organic theme challenge
oliver & ollie's Anni Quilt, which won the Project Modern Monochromatic theme challenge
Kirsta's hot and cold Quilt and her big orange wall quilt via Spotted Stone
Lee's Super(nova) quilt via Freshly Pieced
Kati's Pixelated Color Wheel Quilt via from the blue chair
Lynn's Zinnias Quilt via The Little Red Hen
Jessica's Cantilevers Quilt via Juicy Bits
Violet Craft's Light Cycles Quilt
Heather's Refracted Sunset Quilt and her Stackable quilt via fiberosity

Seriously, aren't they amazing?  I'm partial to rainbows so I like Pixelated Color Wheel and hot and cold best.  Except for the Kelp Quilt, which I also like best.  Actually, I like all of them best.
