Tulip Time Quilt Show - My Entry!

Here in Holland, MI, we have an annual "Tulip Time" celebration of Dutch heritage and culture, which includes parades, Dutch Dancing, concerts, theatre, Dutch attractions, Dutch Food, children's events, a carnival, trolley tours, and last but not least to me - wonderful art on display! It is always held in the beginning of May, when the tulips - which are planted everywhere!! - are at full bloom. It is absolutely beautiful and festive, lively and inspiring. (Here is the official link to the Tulip Time Festival website:

This year, I entered an art quilt into the Quilt Show portion of the festival - and it was accepted!!
I was very fortunate to be granted a "VIP Exhibitor Pass" and will visit this week and see if I may take some photographs of my quilt on display! : ) But for now, I'll just post a quick photo of the quilt I chose, which I've already previously blogged (Impressionistic Style Art Quilt).

I'm very excited about visiting the show, and seeing the other local talent - and perhaps get a little inspiration for next year's entry! I plan to take lots of photos downtown to share on my blog, and I'm planning on taking lots of photos of Tulips - which I'll digitally alter and print out for layers of my future quilts. There will be more to share again soon! : )


  1. Whoot! That's fabulous - maybe you won a placing too - wouldn't that be fun! It's a beautiful piece.

  2. Hi Jodi
    I read that you vivited Dutch Dancing. I am from Holland Europe and I collect everything that has to do with our national symbol the Wooden Shoe, or as we say Klompen. I heard that some dancers break their shoes now and then. I am looking for photos of that. Do you have such photo(s)?


    Kind reghards
