This month's issue of Quilting Arts Magazine features an article about SAQA Connecticut's regional show "Local Color", including images of eight exhibition quilts.

That's my "Blood Iris" on the gallery's opening page! Woo-hoo!

As one of the managing curators, I was asked to write a brief description of the show.  The gallery continues onto the next 4 pages, featuring artwork by Ruth Anne Olson, Phyllis Small, Catherine Whall Smith, Barbara McKie, Kendell Storm, Norma Schlager and the show's Co-curator Diane Wright. These 8 quilts were hand picked by QA and professionally photographed for the magazine. Each image is labeled with the artist's name, title and statement about the piece.

Seven of the quilts (including mine) will travel to Atlanta, Georgia for Quilting LIVE! at the Sewing & Quilt Expo, September 11 – 13, 2014.

Check it out if you can!
