Here are a couple of the pieces I am shipping off tomorrow for the new Texas Quilt Museum. I am sending 4 total pieces for Karey. I hate that some people are making negative comments about the call for donations. If you don’t want to donate… don’t. I think it is a tremendous opportunity to help the museum and to get a few of my pieces out from under the bed and into the public eye.
This was made for the Quilting Arts magazine’s Rock On Challenge a few years ago. It is all silk with hand quilting and embellishments. It is now mounted on a 12 x 16 canvas that has been painted and textured to enhance the quilt.
This piece is 11 x18 and was an experimental piece made in a workshop with Lucky Shie at Arrowmont Craft School in Tennessee.
I think our diary theme that day was ‘eggs’. Certainly not my normal way of working. One of the other pieces from Arrowmont is posted on this blog. It was turned into a baby quilt for my newest grandson Tristan.
I am also donating a more traditional watercolor technique topiary quilt hanging and the “Roy Orbison Memorial Highway” that was in Quilting Arts magazines. You can see a photo of that on the side bar.
