Opening reception for Quilts with a Kick is Friday, August 1st from 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm at the BAC gallery in Old Town. There are lots of lovely quilts in the show.
My quilt is on the left wall in the corner on the bottom.
I have joined in a 60 day bird challenge. I am using various media to create my birds. So far just pen and ink and fabric. I have come up with two fabric ideas I really like. The first Fowl Scraps are 6″ by 5″ blocks made from scraps around my sewing room. They are whimsical and fun to make. The second set are sketched on 5 by 6 canvas. Although these too are made of colorful scraps they take a long time to do as they are based on realistic bird sketches with lots of detail. I hope at the end of this endeavor to improve my sketching skills, and have at least 25 of the fowl scrap birds and 12 realist whimsical birds. I am not planning sewing every day as I have lots of trips coming up.
This weekend is the Berea Quilt Extravaganza. If you are not to far away, Berea is a quaint little art town with lots to see, plus two quilt shows. There are lots of things planned for quilters and those who enjoy the arts.
I finished the Mother Earth quilt, but didn’t get a picture of the finished quilt. I will try to do that on Friday at the Quilt Artist of Kentucky reception in Berea. Two of my smaller quilts are also at that show. QAK’s quiltography quilts will be displayed at the QE exhibit at the high school. I also have my quilt Hugs in the QE show. Sneak peaks of quilts in progress.
