I’ve also just received the exhibition catalog and had my first chance to see the work juried into the show – have to say I am proud to be in such good company and included in such a stunning exhibition.
I just finished a commission that was a lot of fun to work on and wanted to share a few details with you. My client wanted a scene of the Smoky Mountains and, to make it more personal, wanted a quotation featured in the landscape. I usually don’t include text in my own work so it was an interesting challenge to find a way to incorporate it into the scene. The color palette of cool blues, grays and greens with a spark of orange was a joy to work with and I love the texture that the quilting stitch gives to the surface.
I was surprised and thrilled to receive the news that my work The Joy of Soaring was juried into Quilt Visions 2018: Connections! The exhibition opens later this year at the Visions Art Museum in San Diego and I’ll be sure to post the details of the opening reception here if you’re in the area and would like to attend
I’m thrilled to have my work “Straight Furrows” in the March/April 2018 issue of Machine Quilting Unlimited!
