Travel Quilt #6 and some public crafting

I have been working steadily on Travel Quilt #6 since last fall and it is growing.  I got a chance to piece a few units while I was in Manhattan over the weekend and took this pic:

It is amazing how many fewer photos I am taking now that social media isn't a daily habit.  I have been peeking into Instagram lately because I miss my friends, but I don't yet feel the need to post regularly there again.

Travel Quilt 6 is interesting in that I am writing on the triangles but the fabric selection has gotten chaotic (as all my quilts do, I don't know why this surprises me) and I needed to reign it in a bit.  I added horizontal hexagon sashing between some of the rows and that helps but I'm envisioning a 60 degree diamond border and then a wide DSQ print to give it a straight edge.  I am antsy to get to the border stage but I know it's best to just keep piecing units and letting it grow as it will.  I am working with the local library to set up a drop in sewing session for May. Once things are finalized and I have a flyer to share I will post details.  I miss having a quilt group and I'm hoping to make it a regular occurrence if I can. I love having the input of quilters in real life for decisions like these.

I finished a huge quilt at the beginning of 2020 and have yet to post about it here.  I am wondering if I should try to submit it to any local or national shows.  Does anyone have suggestions or know of places taking submissions this spring? Please share.
