Door #1

On Monday, I will be putting this in the mail to Martha Sielman of SAQA, Studio Art Quilt Association, Executive Director, for inclusion in the 2009 SAQA Auction. The color is not quite accurate in this photo. I enjoyed working on it. It is a screenprinted piece from an April workshop combined with commercial fabrics.

The auction is a major fundraiser for SAQA whose purpose is to promote art quilts and art quilters. You can find more information at

Spring Hyacinth I

It has been a long time since I posted anything here. (I thought it had only been 3 weeks.) Oh, well! I have been working. In May two quilts were completed. One was a bed quilt for a charity auction.. Unfortunately, possibly because of finishing it at the last minute, no picture exists. The other piece, completed for an art sale at a fund raiser, is a 16" piece based on a photo of some hyacinths seen in Elizabeth Park in West Hartford this past March. It is the first piece I have prepared to hang by wrapping it on stretcher bars. I was striving for the look of a sketch on top of the quilt grid.
