Stitching from the Soul
A few months back I was delighted to get a request from Quilting Arts Magazine asking if I would be open to writing an article on my Work Quilts. They wanted me to talk about what my inspiration was and a bit about my process in creating them. I was more then happy to do so, and am very pleased to announce that the article is now out and can be found in their current June/July issue! (I loved the title that they gave to the article, as it truly sums up what I am trying to do.)
Thanks Quilting Arts!
Also, I wanted to let you all know, in case you hadn't yet heard, about the new Online Quilt Museum which was created by the amazing Karen, of Selvage Blog.
This site will no doubt prove to be a valuable and educational resource to quilters and quilt lovers. Karen contacted me a bit ago while she was building the new site, asking if I would allow her to feature my Hurricane Katrina Quilt in the Online Quilt Museum's Exhibit section. (Speaking about "stitching from the soul"... this quilt poured out from my soul.)
When I saw Karen's presentation, I was so honored and impressed... she did such a fabulous job, really bringing out the emotion that I felt in creating it... even typing up a section of the words that I wrote on the backside. The whole site is truly a wonderful! Please be sure to visit, and also of interest... Karen is offering Gallery space to individual quilters for a mere $4.95 a month. Go here for the details.
Have a great week!
