Super(nova) News

I got the exciting news on Tuesday that my Supernova quilt was accepted into the Modern Quilt Guild Showcase 2012!! I am so honored (and still a bit in shock) that my quilt was one of only 33 quilts selected from across the country, and it will be hanging at International Quilt Festival in Houston.


After premiering in Houston in the fall, the exhibit will be traveling around to other quilt festivals for about a year. I really hope I'll get the chance to see it somewhere!

I have loved this design since you first posted it. I would like to try making it the original way with squares and HST's. Would it be possible to print a black and white so I could make a diagram for my color placement?
