Airy Ghost

November 8, 2011

I read lots of poetry on the internet looking for a name for this dandelion-apron wall quilt. “Airy Ghost” is what I came up with. Not totally happy with that but it will have to do until something better comes along.

I keep saying that I’m not going to make any more apron quilts, but I just got another idea this afternoon. sigh.

Airy Ghost is hanging in the latest Uncommon Threads exhibit at Hammons Hall for the performing Arts in Springfield, MO.

Carrots at the Pool

September 6, 2010

The Uncommon Threads exhibit “Threads of Memory” has opened and is a great show. You may go to the UT blog to see pictures of almost all the pieces that were exhibited and read Merrilee’s lively descriptions. Here are the members present at the opening standing behind our Good Grief quilt. I wish all members could have been there.

Front Row: Maureen Ashlock, Roberta Ranney, Donna Olson, Dianna Calahan                      Second Row: Cathy Jeffery, Merrilee Tieche, Carol Bormann, Emmie Seaman

I exhibited the three carrots pieces that I finished this summer. They were fun to make and everyone seemed to get a chuckle out of them.

Threads of Memory

August 31, 2010

Uncommon Threads, the art quilt group to which I belong, is having an exhibit at Pool Gallery, Drury University, Springfield, MO, opening this Fri. Our Good Grief quilt will be featured plus two or three pieces of each member’s work. I think it’s our best exhibit ever. If you’re in the neighborhood, we hope you can come.



May – cool and wet

May 11, 2010

Perhaps this picture of a beautiful reddish clematis will help me get through this cold, wet, and very windy day.

I’m not feeling particularly creative today, so I direct you to the blog site of Uncommon Threads,  the art quilt group to which I belong and to the Etsy shop of my friend Nancy.

Take a Moment…

…to read the “Inspired by Photos” information in the sidebar. Linda Matthews has put together a photo hunt and questions, concerning copyright to test your knowledge, with ten quilt artists.  At the end of the hunt, you will be able to dowload an ebook/slideshow of photographs that have been provided by the same ten artists, copyright free, for your use. Enjoy and have fun.barn-landscape

This was a scene as I was coming home, yesterday, from a visit to the Spiva Center for the Arts in Joplin, MO to see “Photo Spiva 2009.”  It was a good exhibit, but I was most impressed with the exhibit upstairs: “Photo Spiva Kids.”  Twenty-six children, ages 4 through 8, were given cameras and it was an exhibit of their work.  Amazing!  Both exhibits run til May 3, 2009.  See them, if you can.

Also, while there, we discovered “Art On A Stick.” Children, in their art classes, make these as the beginning of art projects. The little renderings are taped to pop-cycle sticks and placed in ceramic jars, free for the taking. I was barely able to limit myself to seven; pig that I am.

Reading left to right, the artists are:  Andi Wilson, Michaela Brewer, Sydney Grey, Dakota, Cristina Navarro, Brittany,and  Caitlin. Some last names were illegible.

I just learned that I won an Honorable Mention in the National Small Art Quilts 2008 exhibit at Main Street Gallery, Groton, NY. Well, Hooray!

Delightful Surprise

July 17, 2008

A couple of days ago, I opened the mail the find my “Three Wishes” on the front of the invitation/announcement of the 2008 National Small Art Quilt Works at the Main Street Gallery in Groton, NY. As Pam says, it’s good to see one’s work in black and white to study the contrast and values. I think it works!
