The Flood Clothesline will hang again!

I'm totally THRILLED! The Flood Clothesline has been accepted into the international H2Oh! juried traveling exhibition.  This is a SAQA (Studio Art Quilt Associates) show that will be seen at National Quilt Museum, Paducah, KY from June 23 - Sept. 19, 2017; the New England Quilt Museum, Lowell, MA from July 11, 2018 - Sept. 23, 2018; the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum, Tucson, AZ from Dec. 1, 2018 - Feb. 10, 2019; and the San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles, San Jose, CA from April 19, 2019 - July 14, 2019.  Only 34 works were accepted from a field of 522 entries from 285 artists.  I'm truly honors but I'm also deeply in debt to the many people who shared their images of the flood, including Nancy Gibbes, Lyn Phillips, Dolly Patton, Stephen Chesley, Steve Heweitt, Susan Felleman, Nichool Ranson, Debbie McDaniel Cydney Berry, Cynthia Pierce, Eveleigh Hughey, Elliott Edward Powell, Jim Tothill, Virginia Postic, and others!

Thank you for your inspiration! I've been procrastinating about entering "MOB" into a new Call for Entry...clearly, if I don't try, it won't see the light of day. Your courage inspires me to arouse my own! Congratulations on the acceptance...and thanks!
