I haven’t posted for a while – mostly because I was in Victoria BC last week, visiting family and friends.
While I was there, we visited Satin Moon Quilt Shop to see the ‘It’s Time for Colour!’ traveling quilt show of 36 small quilts by CQA (Canadian Quilters Association) award winners – including one of mine – ‘Rainy Day Girls’. Here are some of the quilts hanging in the quilt shop. You can see all of them (with better photos!) here on the CQA website.
I finished the dog portrait I’ve been working on for about a month, and shipped it off to it’s new home. I love how it looks!
A few months ago, I was invited to submit my quilt ‘Swoop’ for inclusion in the sixth annual issue of the International Quilt Festival: Quilt Scene magazine. I was thrilled to be asked, and of course I agreed! I’ve been checking the magazine stands for the last few weeks, and then a couple of days ago, I received an issue in the mail. ‘Swoop’ can be seen on page 100 of the magazine. This quilt was accepted into the special exhibit Tactile Architecture 2014, which premiered at International Quilt Market and Festival in Houston and is scheduled to travel in 2015 to various International Quilt Festival and Market sponsored shows.
I meant to enter some of my quilts in the Fall Bloggers Quilt Festival at Amy’s Creative Side. I missed the deadline to enter, but do go and check out all the wonderful entries, and vote for your favorites!
And last – but not least – for the third year now, I’ve had calendars printed with some of my original art quilts. Wall and desk calendars are now available in my Etsy shop.
