Quilt Canada 2018
I’m very excited that Quilt Canada is going to be in Vancouver BC next year – May 31, June 1 and 2, 2018 at The Vancouver Convention Centre.
This week, the details of workshops and lectures were posted on the website. Click here to see all the workshops and lectures. Scroll down, and you will see that I am one of the lecturers! I will be talking about the challenges of interpreting architectural structures with fabric and thread.
I have made quite a few architectural-themed art quilts. Here are 3 of my favorites. I’ll be bringing some of them to the lecture.
“Fly Me to the Moon: an Art Quilt Journey”
In 2015, Susanne Jones put out a call for entry for art quilts to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first moon walk. I submitted ‘Bad Moon Rising’ and it was accepted. Along with 178 other art quilts, it is traveling to a variety of venues for four years (2016 to 2020).
I haven’t had an opportunity to see the show in person, but there’s a great website that shows all the quilts and lists the venues. Click here to see all the quilts. Click here to see a list of venues. Click here to see how I made my art quilt ‘Bad Moon Rising’.
And now there’s a book! My copy of the book “Fly Me to the Moon: an Art Quilt Journey” by Susanne Miller Jones arrived last week. That’s my art quilt on page 124.
I’ve been working on a couple of projects, but I can’t show either of them yet, so that’s all for now.
Thanks for stopping by. Today, I’m linking up with these blogs – click on the links below, where you’ll find many other creative and inspirational projects.
