The Proof is Here

I just picked this up - the proof page for our opportunity quilt "Vintage Blooms". 
The Show Committe has decided to offer this as a pattern - available at our show in April.  We have done this in the past, but not in a few years. 
It is really so very exciting!
This is an 8 x 10 page of our 98 x 98" quilt and we wanted to give as much detail as possible.
It's all getting very real and very exciting.  The inside pages should go to the printer in a few weeks.
To those of you buried in snow, stay warm and happy stitching.

I remember that a Dallas quilt guild designed their own quilt for each show and sold the patterns. The patterns were highly prized.

It's incredibly gorgeous! That's so cool about the pattern! I know I'm going to win the quilt, but just in case . . . :-)

This quilt is stunning! Will there be a link to buy tickets and the pattern?

I think it's a wonderful idea to offer the patterns, I hope you sell a lot. I saw your jubilee quilt in your last post, it's looking sensational, you are a star quilter!

What a great idea to sell the pattern to the opportunity quilt. I'll have to pass that idea along to my guild.

Beautiful! Any chance the pattern will be available sooner than April?

Will out-of-towners be able to buy that pattern? I know of one interested quilter in Iowa :)
How exciting to see your design in print!
Our guild used a MN quilter's pattern for next year's raffle quilt, and she suggested that we sell the pattern with a photo of our version on the cover. (She takes a portion of the sales.) What a great way to make money for a guild.
I'm guessing that you're going to sell lots of tickets and lots of patterns. It's a beauty, Karen!
