I got a first for Brown Planet, a Collaboration, the quilt on which I collaborated with Katy Loomis. According to the show rules I had to enter it in the group quilt category. This was its maiden voyage and it has encouraged me to enter it into the big judged show in Houston this fall. I heard many favorable comments. There is a ton of quilting on it, which doesn't show in the picture.
I got a second for Itajime Surprise, which was entered into the special Techniques category. I was happy with the way the lighting hit it to show off all the quilting.
Emerald City was somehow entered into the Pictorial category. I think it was my mistake, but I got a third place anyway against all those quilts that were definitely pictorial. I thought I had entered this into Art Abstract.
My FANE group put on this fabulous display of kimono inspired quits. Here is a picture of mine, Indigo Shibori. You can see all of the kimonos and more about the exhibit at the FANE blog. Just click here.
Here is my little quilt Fractured II from the Back and White Plus One challenge, in which I won a third place and got this cute polka dot ribbon. The ribbon came from the voting of the whole guild back in February.
And lastly is my card from the Deck of Cards exhibit. My quilt, The Nine of Hearts, had cut-out hearts. I thought they were going to be displayed against a white background and wasn't thrilled with the way it looked against this green backdrop.
Each of the artists in this exhibit received a cute little pin to wear with their card and the room number where they were displayed. This is the way the card was meant to look.
My seventh quilt was the one that I made for the silent auction. I neglected to take a picture of that.
On Saturday we also had the opening for the SAQA show, Local Color, and I had two pieces juried into that show. It was held at the Ruth Hass Library at Western CT State University, so many of them were hung high over bookcases and things.
Here is my Of Cabbages and Kings, hanging third from the left.
I think that my triangular Hope Springs Eternal looks so good hanging next to Mickey Lawlor's piece using her scrumptious painted fabric.
Come back soon and I'll show some more pictures from both shows.
