Lacking Gravity by Laura Wasilowski
Frieda and I will have a booth at the International Quilt Festival in Chicago this April. And I’m already dyeing for it!
We’re also teaching there and I’m happy to see that the SAQA exhibit Balancing Act will be on display. Hope to see you there too!
I’m so happy to see that my quilt, Sprouts #2, is on the road. It is part of a regional exhibit of quilts called Deeply Rooted that explores the meaning of connection. As in, I am connected to the earth, therefore, I make quilts about being an earthling.
SAQA has prepared a really great website with artist and venue information. Visit the Deeply Rooted website here.
It’s true, when ever Frieda and I travel to the International Quilt Festival we meet the best people and birds. So put on your bird and visit us at the Artfabrik/Friestyle booth #1229 in Houston!

I totally forgot to tell you that I won a prize at the International Quilt Festival in Houston for this little quilt, Bird on a Branch #6. It won second place in the Art Miniature category.

Hope you like it. I know I enjoyed making it.
Sure we look fresh and pretty in this photo. But in reality Frieda and I are frantically trying to set up our Artfabrik/Friestyle booth at the International Quilt Festival in Houston today.
And it’s all for you! Please stop in and visit us in Booth #1229 and say “Hi!”.
Blue Note by Laura Wasilowski, part of the Got Jazz exhibit.
If you are in Peoria, IL check out the exhibit by the FAC, Fiber Arts Association, at the Peoria Contemporary Arts Center. It’s called Got Jazz and features lots of great art quilts by members of the FAC. The exhibit runs through September 23.
Blue Note (detail) by Laura Wasilowski
My entry, Blue Note, was an opportunity to do the old variation on a theme type of quilt. You pick out a motif (that pointy shape) and make it in various iterations. You get to play with color, shape, and line and make a quilt at the same time!
