World Quilt Show photos (and the Peacock Party)

Scroll down for the World Quilt Show photos.

Today I'm waiting for the courier to bring my Portraits quilt back from the quilter.  She sent me some photos and it's looking amazing.  This is the back, showing the quilting off very nicely. I'm so glad I bought an Anna Maria Horner print for the back. 



I've got two options for the binding set aside, but I don't want to cut it until I see the quilt again.


Thank you for all your kind comments about the World Quilt Show.  A number of kind Facebook friends said they attended the show and some even sent me photos.  these photos are by Mary Ellen Hughes Orchard.
My quilt was the first one people saw when they went upstairs to the second floor.  I was honoured to have the New Zealand flag hanging beside my quilt.





Now it's time for the Peacock Party.  What have you been up to this week?  Feel free to link up below.

Yay for being internationally renown! It's such a happy experience for you, and those who get to see your quilt. As I'm facing a stack of three pin-basted quilts, ready for my domestic machine quilting, I'm feeling a tad envious of you... sending your quilts to a longarm quilter. That's so much faster than do-it-yourself. But, I know that in the end, I'll be glad I took the time. Enjoy selecting binding! I think that's my favorite step in the process because that means I'm close to a finish. And "finished" is the very best feeling!

Your world quilt is fantastic. I wonder if you have to be in a world quilt group, or get fabrics from all over the world. Would like to know more about this project.
