Here There and Everywhere

So what have I been doing since my last post on JULY 3??  Obviously not posting to the blog.  So sorry about that....  BUT I have been doing a lot of quilting related things.  Several of my quilts are going to be on display in various places.  Here are the details:

This quilt is called "Dorothy".  A very special new friend of mine saw this quilt for the first time last summer and declared that it was a portrait of her.  So I recently gave it to her.  It seemed that her house was the right place for it to live.  But anyway - she has entered the quilt (under my name) in the Arkansas/Oklahoma State Fair.  I am excited - I have never entered a quilt in a state fair.  I expect it will be a bit different than the other quilts that are entered.  It should be interesting to hear what the response is.

October 8 - I just found out that I got some sort of Blue Ribbon at the State Fair.  No idea what that means but I think it is wonderful.... and I won $4.14.  WhooHoo!!  

This is "Child Pondering the Future".  The next one is "Night Sky".  Both of these will be on display at the Fall 2012 Art Exhibit presented by the Desoto Arts Council in Hernando, Mississippi from September 9 till November 1.

I am a member of Studio Art Quilts Association (SAQA) and our regional group is being enthusiastically led by our new leader Deb Kuster who is finding places for us to exhibit our quilts and other activities to take part in.  This exhibit possibility became available because of my SAQA membership.

I am pleased to have these quilts "out there" in the world instead of in my garage.  I love both of them and think that they will be very different than any other quilts that are in the group. 
The child quilt uses my older approach to portraits and the sky quilt is something I did several years ago.  Both involve layering, fusing and painting.  But in completely different ways.

A little snapshot of my past Quilting Adventures!
