“I do not want art for a few any more than education for a few or freedom for a few” William Morris
(Just an update – – I just got word that this quilt will hand the the “500 Traditional Quilts Exhibit” at the Internation Quilt Festival/Chicago, April 7-9, 2016. It has also hung in Internation Quilt Festival/Houston, 2014 and at Quilt!Knit! Stitch! 2015 in Portland, Oregon. Then it will come home!! I’m so excited about the attention that this quilt has gotten)
At the urging of a friend, I entered this quilt in a competition to be published in a book “500 Traditional Quilts-500 series” by Karey Patterson Bresenhan. This quilt was accepted for publication in the book and it may be on display with other quilts from the book at the 40th Anniversary of Houston’s International Quilt Festival this fall. I sent it off this morning on its journey (and mine). I am so excited about this and also still pretty unbelieving! Here’s a link to the actual book
Another friend of mine, Danny La, took the professional photos for the book (these aren’t Danny’s photos!)
The quilt is hand appliqued, hand quilted and the design behind the tulips is stenciled on with Paint Stiks.
