Yeah!!! I was accepted for the 3rd year in a row for "Dinner at 8 Artists: The Space Between" Exhibit that debuts at the Long Beach International Quilt Festival in July. The exhibit will travel to Houston and maybe more places.... My quilt is titled: "The Red Tomato"
My sister and I took a workshop from David Taylor at Asilomar for a week. I love his animals- especially Sir Francis his pig. His quilts are of larger than life barn animals-- and detailed!!!! I decided to do a Sea Turtle for my daughters new condo. I still have the background but my turtle is done!
I went on a tour of the Hoffman Fabric Facility in Mission Viejo on my birthday. Absolutely loved seeing and touching all of the fabrics! It was nice to know that they still employ artists to paint some of the scenes for their prints. Jamie Fingal set up the tour for SAQA members.
