This time of year, a quilter's thoughts turn to spring and for me, spring is all about Quilt Week in Paducah, Kentucky. An annual tradition for the past 14 years, I enter the show and spend the week at my sister's home in Cape Girardeau, MO. We attend the show together and just have a great time.
I'm happy to announce that my quilt Happy has been juried into the show this year as well
another of my quilts A Few of My Favorite Things.
A Few of My Favorite Things
And this year, another of my quilts Moonlight Migration will be on exhibit at the National Quilt museum in Paducah as part of their New Quilts From an Old Favorite challenge. I'll attend a book signing on Friday, April 28th; I wrote a chapter about my quilt for the annual book published by AQS.
What am I working on now? A smaller wall hanging, done in wool appliqué on cotton backgrounds using my raw edge machine appliqué technique to stitch the motifs. Some of these blocks were adapted from my Flower Power quilt and others were newly designed.
I love the results. All the blocks are stitched but not pieced yet and I'm in the process of adding some hand beading. Of course, there will be borders to design and appliqué.
Happy Spring and Quilt Week!!
