During the cold, gray days of winter in Illinois, my favorite companion is an old blue velvet chair that sits across form me as I read. It is like an elderly member of the family, treasured and admired for its antique poise. One day I pictured my blue chair reading along with me. It was reading the Blue Book on Blue Chairs.
If you would like to see Blue Book on Blue Chairs, it is currently exhibited at the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles in San Jose, CA. The exhibit, Layered and Stitched: 50 Years of Innovative Art, features 50 contemporary quilt artists and shows “the evolution of the art quilt from the earliest pioneers to contemporary artists experimenting with new forms, materials, and digital technologies.” I am fortunate to be one of those artists.
