I have a quilt at the Int'l Quilt Festival of Ireland!

I was contacted a few months ago with an invitiation to put my Monopoly quilt in the "Games and Puzzles" exhibit at the http://www.iqfoi.com/.   How cool it felt that someone saw my quilt and thought it was nice enough to send that email! 
I pondered whether to send it, after all, it's a bed quilt and has been used daily for a few months by the teen boy.  After a good wash and examination, it appears P has been taking good care of it.  I did ask P if I could send it off to the show and it took him a couple days to decide it was okay.  Frankly, I think that was more of a compliment to the TRUE value of the quilt than even the invitation. Two good compliments in one week.  I had to be careful fitting my head through the doorways for a bit there! -wink-

Anyway, I decided to send it off and it's should be hanging there as I type this. The show is this weekend and if you are going or know anyone who is going, can you do me a favor (or beg a favor for me)?

Could you get a picture of "Monopoly" at the show and email it to me? I'd be forever grateful!

If you are going, have a wonderful time. Hubs and I have been talking about getting back to visit such a beautiful country again, it's too bad we couldn't make it work for this weekend.

Cheers!
Beck
