Opening tomorrow at the International Quilt Show in Long Beach, my quilt, Balance, which was juried into the Dinner@8 exhibit, An Exquisite Moment. I wish I was there! Thank you so much Jamie Fingal and Leslie Jenison for curating this exhibit. AND special thanks to Moore's Sewing Centers for their sponsorship!
It seems like balance is much easier to maintain when things are going right in my life! However, I find that I appreciate it so much more during the other times, when life is chaotic and full of stress. That ephemeral moment of balance gives me hope and grounds me.
This quilt is made from some new batik designs I have been playing with this spring. It was such a joy to put them to use in this quilt. The pieces were individually cut and fused into place with Mistyfuse. Then I used black thread to go around the entire figure; this mostly shows only on the white side of the quilt. Then I quilted in simple arching lines with grey thread. Sweet simplicity!
Blurb Book by Lois Bogue is available of the exhibit if you are interested! I LOVE the cover by Cheryl Sleboda!!
