Welcome Back

After a long break from social media and even my own blog, I’m back. With lots of news.

Just over five years ago, I joined SAQA (Studio Art Quilt Associates) and answered a call for entry for an exhibition called Seasonal Palette and exactly five years ago this week that I found out I was one of the lucky thirty-seven artists to be included. We were¬†charged with creating a 32 x 78 inch long art quilt inspired by one of the seasons, mine was spring and that is how I came to make Tranquil Marsh – Wild Iris. And now, five years later, it’s back.

It went on a long sojourn around the globe, from Houston, Texas to Tainan City, Taiwan. The last time I saw it was four years ago during the Seasonal Palette premiere at the International Quilt Festival in Houston but after that, I wish I could have been rolled up with it and gone along for the ride. Here are a just few pictures of the many ports of call over the years.
