June was a very busy month! It’s the beginning of July, and I just realized I haven’t posted since May 21st.
At the beginning of June, my husband and I spent a very enjoyable week in New York City. I took lots of photos, and I’m sure some of them will provide inspiration for future art quilts. Here are some of my favorite NYC memories.
We returned home from NYC, and the following week I traveled to Toronto for Quilt Canada, where I had two quilts accepted to the National Juried Show. I’m thrilled to say that my quilt ‘Eclipse’ won the 2nd place award in the Modern category. You can see all of the award-winning entries here.
We spent the next 3 days attending lectures and events, shopping in the merchant mall, meeting friends and, of course, viewing hundreds of gorgeous quilts! Here are just a few of my favorites.
In between all that travel (and an occasional stint at my day job), I was working on a commission portrait quilt. I finished it a couple of days ago. As with most of my portrait quilts, it started with a photo, from which I made a line drawing, then created the shapes with fused fabrics, and quilted it. The finished size is 12 x 12 inches.
So that’s what I did in June. I don’t have any travel scheduled for July or August, so I plan to spend a lot more time in my studio producing new work, and posting more frequently to my blog.
Thanks for stopping by. Today, I’m linking up with these blogs – click on the links below, where you’ll find many other creative projects to inspire you.
