We had a great quilt show but it wiped me out! It didn’t help that my cat was punishing me with 2am and 3am wake-up calls for not being around all week!
Many quilts sold, as well as, one pillow and a few bags of vintage patchwork blocks. The quilts that hung in the show were amazing and so creative and inspiring.
I never have time to take photos but I did snap a quick one of this beauty – Tree of Life, made by my friend Sue Atlas. It earned a 2nd place (not sure the category); the winners will be on the SDQS website in the near future. Sue’s quilt also won 1st place at AQS.
Now I’m pushing a deadline. Here are some parts of a mixed media piece I’m working on. The fingers here are clay but because of the weight I’m going to try and recreate them in paper clay. Also, I painted one eyeball on silk (wrapped around a round rock) but then figured they needed to be painted on a flat surface, so I’ll be painting two new ones.
With every new part for this project my family tells me – “That’s creepy.” But in the end I hope it won’t be too creepy! More to come.
Thanks for stopping by!
Can’t wait to see the final mixed media piece. Glad your part of the show went well,
Thank you, Joanna. I’m looking forward to finishing and sharing it!
