Sisterly Love

Today was "The New Big Leaf" class with quilters from Mountain Laurel Quilters Guild in Wellsboro, Pennsylvania. Two wonderful sisters grabbed a yard of my fabric and split it to make leaves that show, well, sisterly love. Thanks for all who spent a very swell and happy day making these leaves.

Full Bloom, Full Moon

The Flower Moon which appeared a couple of days ago is aptly named. My viburnum will stand in for the nighttime glow, which you can't miss. And if you did, you could find this by scent, something a moon can't give you.

It's a Start

At QSDS, the week ends with a great auction and raffle. I thought I'd use this fabric to make two small works, one for each week I'll be there. Time will tell if I get these done!

Scarves to Go

The Memorial Art Gallery as well as Shop One at RIT sells my scarves. Well, they will have more next week when I drop off a few more for them. I use silk exactly as I print the cotton. Loads of color, these are soft and easy to wear. Someday I'll find time to make a shirt.

Pillow Stack

Next week I'll pack these pillows up and deliver them to the Memorial Art Gallery. They're all hand printed and full of color. The shop will echo the next show "Finger Lakes" that highlights artists in this upstate region of New York. I'm happy to be included in the show. And the Gallery Store.

Make Time

This 12" square has been waiting for me to finish it. And with just a few days to spare. I'm ready to send to the SAQA auction before June 1. The auction is online, supports the organization's mission. And there are many, many nice works beside this. Check out Studio Art Quilt Associates here: https://www.saqa.com/auction-quilts.php

Passing Through Pittsburgh

Xia Gao's work "Passing" is part of the half of the Fiberart International exhibition I saw last week in Pittsburgh. It has three layers of buckrum that are burned in places to reveal an image. The middle portrait is difficult to see (let alone photograph) and the work is haunting.

It Was Fun

"Genesee" is now installed at the Stitched exhibit in Memphis. Made to withstand outdoor weather it is made with denier nylon and synthetic fabrics. Large? 24 feet wide by 12 high.

Slice of Life

There was no escaping the mother's day fever. Even ordering  a slice at Pizza Brain in Philly today it was on everyone's mind. Here is the outside dining in true Philly mosaic fashion.

Hair Receivers

Jayoung Yoon's piece "Membrane" is also part of the Fiberart International  exhibit. She used her own hair to weave this.  Definitely gives pause.
