Exciting Quilt Updates

Lots of exciting updates on the quilting front to share...

"Thunderstruck" was selected as one of ten finalists for the Riley Blake Creative Rockstar Fabric Challenge!!  With over 200 submissions, I am just honored!!!  Be sure to check out the winning quilts and fabulous finalists.

A few days later, I learned that my "RE$I$TAN¢E" was one of 62 quilts juried into the Threads of Resistance Traveling Exhibit.  Given the sheer number of entries (500+) and the high caliber of entries, I am truly honored to be included in this dynamic display.  It will be heading off to the New England Quilt Museum for the July 15th Opening Reception.  In October, the entire exhibit will make its way to the Santa Clara Convention Center for Pacific International Quilt Festival, so I will get to see it in person!!  Be sure to check out the travel schedule to find a venue near you.

  1. Congratulations. Well deserved. I look forward to seeing the details of Re$$tance. You are always on point in your critiques. This is an extremely important reminder of some of the things at risk with this Republican Congress and Administration.

    1. Thanks Ann...there is so much at stake and I hope my quilt and the entire exhibit will continue the conversation and encourage others to speak up.
