New Year, New Work

 
I am really excited to be showing my quilt art at the Malvern Retreat House Art Show. This year there is a special focus on fiber art, with 15 artists invited to exhibit and sell their work, along with numerous artists in many different mediums.
 
 
So I have pulled out bins of fabric and started a new wall hanging. February is coming up soon! When I was juried into the show, the committee selected several quilts and I want this new quilt to fit into my series of wild flowers of the Appalachian Trail. It's important to me to show a cohesive body of work.
 
 
I decided after I completed Sweetwater Gap Bloodroot, that I needed to get some different colors in my quilts. Enough brown and green woodland with white flowers.
 
 
Well! Still a forest green and brown background but I'm planning on appliquéing pink trillium flowers. Change sometimes happens a step at a time!

  4. I do not remember you being “Grinchy”. In fact, quite the opposite, i.e., a Christmas wedding the day after a snowstorm with a bride dressed in white velvet and attendants in evergreen velvet (with mint green satin trim, hand-pleated )that we made! I’d love to see those pictures again. Your swag feather design on the quilt above reminded me of the handmade Christmas notes with an elaborate holly border you gave me one year for Christmas!

    Just marked my calendar to be there for the Wednesday opening…heading south THURSDAY. what? No wine? Looking forward to this.

  6. I am going to miss this show! But i will be busy packing my bags for Rajasthan. I hope you take plenty of pictures to share later. I think the pink trillium will look beautiful on forest colors.
