Accepted!

When the Brush Gallery in Lowell, MA announced that this year's show in Art Quilts Lowell had a theme, The Sea, I thought I had just the right quilt for it. I heard yesterday that my "Ocean Treasures" was juried in.


The quilt is all pieced, using free form curved piecing and uses my hand dyed fabrics and some commercial prints. Please click on the picture to see all the critters quilted in. I used heavy Jeans thread for the quilting so that my critters would really show up. Below are some of the details.




The show will run from August 6- September 10.

Lowell has been very good to me. Over the past few years I have had four quilts juried into shows at different galleries, the Brush, the Whistler and the NE Quilt Museum. Three of them sold and the fourth one won a cash award. This one makes quilt number five.
