I recently entered 5 of my quilts into the Northeast Arts Council Show held in Standish, Michigan every January. I have entered this show on and off for the last 7 or 8 years. It is not huge but it is well done. The show is held in an old church that is now used as the Arts Council Center. Most of the quilts are pretty traditional. I love traditional quilts and usually enter quilts appropriate to the show. This year I decided to enter a few of my art quilts. I wasn’t sure how well they would be received but I ended up taking home 5 ribbons! Here is a picture of three of myquilts hanging together. You can see the Pomegranate is very traditional, green and red applique complete with trapunto, but the other two are decidedly more contemporary.
The miniatures were displayed on glass shelves in a glass display case so this pic is not great:
And this one was just about to be taken down at the end of the show so that explains the stuff pinned on top:
After picking up the quilts, my dear daughter and I headed over to the local A&W for a float. Isn’t she lovely?
And here is a picture of the dreary Michigan winter that I am quite tired of by now:
It just looks cold, doesn’t it? I haven’t blogged anything in a while, life has intervened. So I guess this long post with pics is my attempt to make up for neglecting the blog. It is also cover for the fact that I haven’t gotten much sewing done lately.
I am making some progress at cleaning out the sewing room still. It is very hard for me to work in chaos. I am working very hard at simplifying my life this year and one of my goals is to make a serious dent in all the stuff I have accumulated art/sewing wise. I have a certain amount of cleaning out I want to do every week and for the most part, I have kept this goal pretty well. Although I better get to work now or I will miss it for this week! Until next time…
