I’m thrilled to join Nancy Bardach, Lisa Call and Dan Olfe as the “Artists to Watch” in Issue No. 7 of Art Quilt Collector magazine. It’s even more exciting to have a detail of a new artwork, Boundary Waters 85, featured on the cover.

SAQAAuction400December 21

After hand stitching this small artwork within an inch of its life, I donated it to the silent auction to be held at the Studio Art Quilt Associates’ conference coming up in April.  But you can see it April 6 – 8 in a special preview at the SAQA booth at the International Quilt Festival in Rosemont, near Chicago, IL.

2×20 Exhibit Opening in California

raw-edge collage created with machine stitching.

Two by Twenty, a Studio Art Quilt Associates’ juried exhibition will be shown at Road to California, Ontario, CA, January 19 – January 22. I saw this exhibit in The Netherlands and it is well worth a visit.  Each of the twenty juried artists has two artworks in the exhibit. My Shagbark 3 and Shagbark 4 are included.

In person is really the only way to see how the Shagbark series was created from hundreds of small pieces cut from individually screen printed upholstery fabric samples. Nothing was fused, so you can imagine the pins (and the time) involved.

There are seven Shagbarks – see them all here.

There is a beautiful catalog available for the exhibit from SAQA, now on sale for $10.
