ACCEPTED INTO ARTQUILT ELEMENTS 2010


(Above: Father and Mother, Grave Rubbing Quilt. 29" x 30". Crayon on silk rubbings. Vintage drawn work linen. Silk. Hand and free-motion machine embroidery. Click on image to enlarge.)

Over the past Halloween weekend my husband Steve and I went to Oregon for a magical time....exploring the sand dunes, rocky coastline, the caves, Crater Lake, and lots of wilderness trails. We sampled microbrews and skate (yes...I ate part of a "sting ray!"). One night we were in the Crown Plaza presidential suite; one night in a rustic seaside cabin with a fireplace; one night in a treehouse called the Peacock Roost....30 feet above ground. Photos are coming.

In the meantime, I received an email confirming the acceptance of Father and Mother into the prestigious ArtQuilt Elements 2010 international juried show in the Wayne Art Center outside Philadelphia, PA! This is my first truly "international" show! The list of accepted work is HERE. I'm over the moon about this!
