I've wanted to enter the Road to California Quilt Show for a few years, but never had anything I thought worth of being juried into that pretigious show. This fall, when reviewing my list of upcoming shows, I noticed the Road to California enry fee was only $10. Application fees to some of the shows now are as much as $30 or $40 bucks...i just refuse to pay that much on principal. $40 bucks so someone can look at two digital photos online and reject me? Nah.
Anyway, ten bucks was a gamble I was willing to take. I decided to enter Deep in December, which had won an Honorable Mention at the 2012 LaConner Quilt Museum's Quilt Fest. Then I went off to Europe for a month and forgot about the whole thing. So it was a nice surprise to come home and learn my ten bucks had been well spent. This little quilt is going to Road to California.
