Going to America & now France!

Well, unfortunately I'm not but my La Passacaglia quilt "Tulafiori" is!
It's one of 20 chosen for the Quiltmania exhibition being held in Houston, Texas next month, how exciting is that! Can you hear me screeching with excitement?
Here are a few close up shots taken by my work colleague Tiff  Lang who's an awesome photographer, thanks Tiff :)
