During the past few weeks I have kept busy in my studio finishing the top for the “Explorations: Journeys in Creativity” show. Since my unique hand quilting techniques were selected to share through journaling my process, I had to first make the top that I will hand quilt. To date, I have been documenting the entire process not just my hand quilting. Here are a few photos of the top as I proceed with the initial auditioning of the fabrics for “Transfusion #7” to some of the final tweaking.
Once the top is complete then there is the challenge of picking out the fabric for the back of the quilt – which will determine the quilting lines that will highlight sections of the quilt top. Speaking of quilting, since today was such a beautiful day – I decided to head outside and do a little “Plein Air” quilting. Here I am enjoying the fresh air!
I will keep you posted on any show up dates but as of now this show will be held at the New England Quilt Museum (NEQM), in Lowell, MA . The show of 24 artists will take place in two parts, with 12 selected artists in each show. The first show opens at NEQM from October 3 – December 28. The Artists Reception is Saturday, October 13 at 1pm. The second group will be from April 2 – June 23. (This is a change of date) The Artist Reception will be held on Saturday, April 6, 2019 at 1pm. As of now I do not know which show my work will be in – but both shows will be equally exciting!!
