Happy Things

A couple of fun and exciting things have happened recently.

- I went to the AQS show in Lancaster. It was wonderful to see so many lovely quilts.

- I won a Judge's Choice award at the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival for California Dreaming. Yeah!

- I'm so pleased to have two of my quilts (Winter's Tarnish and Return of the Grackle) featured in the April/May issue of Quilting Arts in Jane Davila's article on filler stitching, plus a full page ad for Craft Daily featuring Sunrise Serenade as the backdrop. (All these quilts are on my "Recent Quilts" page.)

- I finished a small quilt! When I find out if it was accepted to the exhibit I entered it in I'll share all the details.

I was so wishing spring would have arrived by now, but alas, this is how it looks in my neck of the woods today:

Here's hoping spring has already sprung for you.

Saw your quilts in the latest QA magazine. Stunning. I just happily stumbled upon your blog. Are you painting on fabric? I will have to check out your DVDs.

Thanks so much Carolyn! The majority of my work is digital collage printed directly on fabric, which is what I discuss in my DVDs. Thanks for stopping by!

Just wanted to say thank you for your DVD, I got it for myself for my birthday. It is wonderful, I am having such fun playing with my photos, I have made many brushes, and want to go out and do more photography. I did run my printer out of color pretty quickly, it was almost out anyway. But I think I'll send some off to Spoonflower to get printed on silk. And make more fabric pages with Bubble Jet Set. THANKS! AMY
