Cover Girl!

My 3 quilts are back home from Chicago and Houston.  In the box was a program from each show, which is when I discovered that my quilt is on the cover of the program for the Chicago show!  It was in magazine ads for the show, and on a postcard, and a class catalog as well.  Out of several hundred quilts in the show, mine was chosen.  What an honor!  Thank you, Quilts, Inc.

Portrait of Greco

Greco is my son’s cat.  She’s the newest in a long line of cats that have spent time with me and grown up with my children.  

The portrait was developed from a photograph by the artist.  The quilt includes hand dyed fabrics by the artist, and extensive threadwork. Greco “helped” out with the sewing of this quilt by napping in the room while I was sewing and trying to explore the sewing machine.
