DEDICATED TO MY SOMEWHAT NON-LINEAR EXPLORATION OF ART QUILTING.

New Work


I turned this piece in for photography on June 20th and that afternoon when I got back home, my world changed rather dramatically. My husband went to the ER with chest pains and shortness of breath and wound up having six way coronary artery bypass surgery on the 23rd. He is now recovering well.

Today I picked up the photo CD for this piece and am anxious to share it. A few of us in our guild, AQuA (Art Quilt Association), wanted to do a project with a more serious theme and chose "Atrocities, Women and War". This is my piece, titled "Where". We don't have firm arrangements yet to display our pieces, but a couple of possibilities are in the works.

I love it! I'm getting ready to to do a lecture this fall on quilts with meaning and this one certainly fits the bill! Too bad I don't have powerpoint, (I'm doing slides and a trunk show) or I'd ask you for a .jpg.

I love the design, the colors and the sentiment.

Excellent!

Carole, it is indeed powerful, and speaks volumes. I hope I might be able to see it in person when I'm there in August.

Glad to see life is calming down at least a little bit--

Carole - What an outstanding piece! I'm interested in living in that place - let me know if you find out where it is....

What a strong piece, Carole! Glad your husband is doing well - cheesh - life certainly hands us stuff to deal with, doesn't it?

Is this the same theme that Jeanette was working on in class? Should be a powerful exhibit!
