Quilt was featured in the local newspaper

My rusted toxic barrel quilt was featured in our local newspaper on Friday. How cool is that?  We went to the opening of the show on Friday night. It's a very small gallery and not many people were there. 2 artists were going to talk about the artwork, but we had to leave to go to a wrestling match so I did not hear their comments. A lot of the artwork was very cool and interesting. There were a lot of political and environmental statements being made by the artists.

The quilts are all home.....

Linking to Nina-Marie. http://ninamariesayre.blogspot.com/

My one month show at the Bellefonte Art Musem is over and the quilts are home again. I did put prices on some of the quilts, but surprise, surprise I did not sell anything. It's the usual thing that I experienced. People tell you you should sell things and that you will easily sell your work. And then when you try to sell them nothing sells. So at least I am now surrounded by all my quilts again. The walls are happy again.  Have you had much luck selling your art quilts? I figure the only way to sell them is to sell them at really low prices. Maybe I'm wrong on that....

My toxic barrel quilt is now at another gallery in State College for a show called Artists Take a Stand during February.

If you are in the area you should stop by. I did have an online friend (Eileen) drive from Philly to State College to see my show at the Bellefonte Art Museum. Here we are in front of one of my quilts called Midwinters Night.


Thanks for reading. Here are pics of the barrel quilt.

Hail to the lion

I've made more progress on the lion. Now I am working on figuring out what background fabric to use. A friend suggested using white, but I think it looks better with dark dark blue. I have some good pieces, but they are too small. So trying to find something that is big enough in my stash has been a bit of a problem. 

This is the best one so far. What do you think? The size will be 18 inches by 18 inches.

Progress on the lion

The lion is moving along. I think it is pretty much done except for some tweaking. The white parts that butt against the white Teflon sheet cannot be seen. When I make the quilt the background will be a dark blue. The blue tape is just for holding this to my design wall.

Thanks for reading.
