Artquilts:Markings

Thanks to Katherine M. for taking these pictures at the PAQA South show at the Page-Walker Art & History Center in Cary, NC. One of these days I'd like to get to a show and see my stuff in person. Guess I'm going to have to rattle the cage on the fiberart sensibilities here in ATL if I want to see that happen anytime soon. huh. This piece did not have the wavies before it left home. I wonder what goes on in those UPS trucks? And it's nice to see how gallery lighting can emphasize the textures that we strive for by actually quilting the cloth. Oh yeah, that's why I do this stuff.

Hey Deb, these look fabulous in the gallery. I love the rich texture and color work. Almost like tapestry taken to a new level. Congrats and hope you sell some pieces.

Very exciting stuff! I've seen my work once or twice, I am thrilled to be able to see my piece hang in the quilt national show! it really is all about the texture, isn't it? I love that in dyeing the cloth, I can think to myself, oh, that can be emphasized, tined down, or whatever, when I get to the stitching part.
