New Exhibition "Inspiration Quilts: Then and Now" is Open (Willimantic, CT)

Please join me at the opening reception on Saturday May 24, 2014 from 1:30 – 3:30pm at the Windham Textile & History Museum!

Many of the artists will be there to see the show, mingle with our fiber art buddies and talk to visitors.

Inspiration Quilts: Then and Now
May 16 – September 7, 2014
Windham Textile & History Museum


The exhibit celebrates the museum’s 25th anniversary by featuring 25 special quilts: twelve antique quilts from the museum’s collection, twelve contemporary quilts created by artists inspired by the antique quilts, plus a group quilt composed of 25 blocks by members of the Connecticut chapter of Studio Art Quilt Associates.

This month's issue of Connecticut Magazine features an article about the show with photos of my "Honey Bee" as well as the quilt that inspired it: Ruth Snow Bowden's "Grandmother's Flower Garden".
