Denver National Exhibit

For the third year my art quilt group, AQuA, will have a special exhibit at the Mancuso Denver National Show. The theme this year is "Free Range Fibers". My piece in the show is "Don't Fence Me In". My idea was to start with the basic Rail Fence pattern and keep stretching it until the fence is broken and the quilter flies free over the range. I love my little flying quilter! If you are at the show be sure to stop by and see our exhibit.

I'm Still Here

It has been a while since I have posted, but I'm still here and actually doing some work. Right now I'm working on a quilt for a bed in a boat! The boat is very cool - an old wooden boat - and deserves something special. I've been nervous about getting it right, but I think I have come up with something my customer and I both like. The picture above is my draft image of the quilt. The actual fabrics are all batiks, and not all of them are blue. I'm also using patterned fabrics in blues and golds. This draft is primarily to show the value gradations and placement of the photos.
