World Quilt Show New England

The World Quilt Show New England takes place in Manchester, NH Aug. 15-18.  I'll have three quilts there:  Remembering Hawaii, Purple Cow, and this one, which is part of SAQA's traveling exhibit Color Wheel of Emotions.  Details about the show are here.  I'm thrilled we'll be able to see the show!  With any luck, we'll also fit in a day at the beach along the way.

Spring is Here!

The ground may be white, but spring is here, and soon the world will be green again.  This tiny bluebird was created as a donation for the upcoming Quilt Show's mini quilt sale.  The bird is hand-drawn with Inktense pencils, while the surrounding greenery is collaged fabric layered on top.

Tea with Wren

Here's the little quilt that reflects my morning routine.  Tea, sunrise, and the Carolina Wren singing with the dawn.  Of course it's too cold today to go out, but the wren is still around, and the blue color of the sky around 6:30 am this time of year is stunning.  The quilt includes foil for the lamp and moon, hand-coloring, and "thread-painting" for the bird.  The edges are bound with recycled dryer sheets to reflect the mist in the morning air.
