Quilts for Art: Mini-Quilt Raffle – October 29, 2011 – January 8, 2012 – Here is your chance to win a small quilt donated by one of the exhibiting quilters in “Quilts=Art=Quilts 2011”.  Tickets are $2 each or 3 for $5. Purchase your tickets by phone (315) 255-1553 or at the Art Center. Drawing will be held on  January 8th. You do not need to be present to win – winners will be notified by telephone. Proceeds benefit the Art Center’s ongoing exhibitions & programs, including Quilts=Art=Quilts, Quilting by the Lake & QBL2.

For this worthy cause, I decided to do a simple composition using a similar palette as the diptych in the show, but added some of my photo images of those “marshmallows” – or hay covered  in white plastic.  I usually do not alter the color of the image – but prefer to print it out duplicating the sunlight on the subject  – which on that day was a wonderful glowing lavender – blue.  The piece is hand-quilted in straight lines across it’s surface.  – – – With permission, I’m hoping to take some photos of the other “Mini Quilts” and post them on my blog when I return from the Opening this week-end.
