I thought some of you might like to see my display as 'Featured Quilter' for our quilt show that is on today and tomorrow. Thanks to my Resident Chef who helped me hang all these AND get them reasonably straight.
Over the next few posts I will show you some of the other quilts that caught my eye at the show so stay tuned!
- I came across THIS CAL and of course you know there's a wee little girl in my life that just *might* be finding it under the tree at Christmas.
- There are a ton of fun ideas HERE for using up scrap fabrics.
- Have a look at the creations of THIS artist (and be sure to take note of what she uses!)
- I stumbled across THESE and thought you might find them interesting as well.
- Some of you might be interested in seeing THIS comprehensive list of QAL's happening throughout 2023. Thanks to Jocelyn for this one.
Nice display. Wishing you great success!ReplyDelete
Thank you! I'm happy to see some of my work all displayed together because I've never really laid them out to see them from a distance.Delete
That's a terrific display of your work. Thanks to resident chef for helping. I expect you'll get a lot of appreciative visitors. Next week let us know about comments.ReplyDelete
I've spent part of the morning at the show and will be going back this afternoon for another couple of hours. It's fun to overhear comments about my work when people aren't aware I'm right there.Delete
Just love the Sea GLass sew along pictures--I had made my own Garden Path quilt for a friend using pieces like that when I first began sewing. in the 1980's using the book: "Experimental Stitchery" by the artist Arline K. Morrison (1977)-- What a great fun project as detailed in her "Windswept Garden" --she actually sent me a nice hand written card to thank me for my interest. I highly recommend her book...a great read.ReplyDelete
I just love your Barns Wall--great that you are a "Featured Quilter" much deserved. Hugs for a great Memorial day Weekend Julierose
I will have to see if I can locate a copy of that book because it sounds interesting. Glad you found something in the links that you like!Delete
Your display looks wonderful and well put together. Enjoy all the good vibes and have fun!ReplyDelete
Thank you Lorraine. It's been fun listening to all the comments and talking with some of the show attendees.Delete
Resident Chef and you did very well setting up your display. It is all just so lovely.ReplyDelete
He has a much 'straighter' eye than I do so I took him up on his offer to help. Then I dragged the poor man around to look at all the other quilts...long suffering as he is.Delete
Sherry of createology: Hello Featured Artist! Your display looks fantastic. Resident Chef is multi talented. I hope you get sales from this show. Your creative quilt landscapes are amazing dear.ReplyDelete
Thanks Sherry! I'm honoured to be featured, especially when there are so many other extremely talented quilters in our guild. Sales would be good, but I never count on it.Delete
Mary Anne, you must be so proud - what an amazing display of your work.ReplyDelete
Yet again I thank you for all the wonderful links that you find for us all.
The scrap fabric link sent me down a rabbit hole ! I'm always looking for small things to make from all the scrappy bits of fabric, and this was a great link.
I came home happy because I actually sold one and have a possible commission. Good news and so much fun to listen to all the people complimenting my work. Makes me feel as though I'm not wasting my time.Delete
Glad you found a nice soft rabbit hole to explore.
Great news selling one of them - wonderful. Plus a commission, go you !Delete
Sending big congratulation hugs. Val (UK)
What an impressive display - great job! There's nothing quite like being able to step back and see your own work en masse, is there? I hope you enjoyed both days :)ReplyDelete
It really was a bit of a revelation to see at least a portion of them on display like that. Sometimes, after you've looked at a project up close for so long, you tend to lose persepective on it. The show was fun - I really enjoyed talking to the people who stopped by to see my work.Delete
I'm just passing by but wanted to say the artwork on those pieces is great! I like the red bug too :-)ReplyDelete
Thanks for the visit Rob and your kind comment!Delete
That is so cool!ReplyDelete
I'm certainly happy it's over although I must say it was really gratifying to hear all the positive comments from the attendees.Delete
Woohoo, what a beautiful display! I'm sure you heard lots of positive comments.ReplyDelete
They all look amazing, but I think I like the outhouse the best!
Yes, it was certainly gratifying to hear all the wonderful comments. Certainly gives me incentive to carry on with what I'm doing! Must admit the outhouse is one of my favourites too.Delete
Seeing all your landscapes gathered and displayed together causes me to think, WOW!! Each one, of course, is amazing, but seen together as a body of work I am struck by your unique gift as a textile artist, Mary Anne. Astonishing really. How fabulous the wider community was able to see and appreciate your sublime landscapes. How fun.ReplyDelete
I was intrigued by seeing them all together as well - first time I'd had occasion to lay them out that way. I overheard two ladies talking as they came in to the show, saw my work and one commented to the other that she didn't understand why a painter would be the 'featured quilter'. Wish I'd had a camera on her face as she got closer and realized they're made of fabric.Delete
Great display of your work. You paint with fabric.ReplyDelete
It appears some people think so. Thanks.Delete
Your display definitely shows why you were chosen to be featured.ReplyDelete
awww - thank you!Delete
I love seeing your amazing work assembled together. Fortunate are those who saw them up close and personal. Hilltop PostReplyDelete
Awww - thank you! I rather enjoyed seeing them together too, because I don't usually lay them out all at once.Delete
