Jessica's show submission

in case you didn't know it,
And now everybody that visits our traveling quilt show will know it too.  My submission reflects my belief that blogland is an integral part of the Modern Quilt movement, and I am grateful for it.  Without blogs and the online quilting community, I never would have found you guys..
Modern quilters still make all kinds of quilts, and I don't yet see one common thread that is visible in all our work, but I think it is undeniable that the way we communicate, gather, share and stay connected with each other would not be possible without the internet.  I think that is what we have in common and that is what sets us apart from the quilters that came before us.  No one color, technique, or aesthetic goal, just being part of a larger community that accepts each quilter for who he or she is.  Thanks you guys.
