Quilts in France!
Here are my art quilts in France. So far not a very exciting exhibit, but on April 15 theĀ  Quilt Expo en Beaujolais opens and they’ll be properly displayed. Its good to be one of Les Artistes!

On display in France will be Prairie Breeze (above). My favorite part in making this piece was the assemblage of the hill collages from bias cut strips fused to background fabrics. The overlapping farm fields remind me of the rolling hills of southern Wisconsin. And as distant as Wisconsin and France may be, they have one thing in common…..why cheese of course!

Blue Ladder at the Yeiser
Once upon a time, when I was a young girl living on a farm, we had an apple orchard. The apple varieties ranged from Macintosh to Johathan to the intriguing “Prairie Spy”. Who was the Praire Spy and why was an apple named for him? The imagination whirls!
Inspired by this mystery spy, I made a Blue Ladder (above) featuring my father’s apple orchard. Blue Ladder will be on exhibit at the Yeiser Art Center in Paducah, KY April 3 – May 2, 2010. If you’re attending the AQS show, in Paducah, please stop in and see it.

Opera Singers
Yesterday I gave a presentation at the acoustically wonderful Newberry Opera House in Newberry, SC. Here you see the kind members of the Quilters of South Carolina giving me a warm welcome that left me smiling. Their beautiful voices filled the Opera House with the lyrics to the Chicago School of Fusing Fight Song. Thank you Quilters of South Carolina!
