Morris Graves Museum of Art in Eureka, CA, exhibited works from artists of different mediums.
The exhibit was called: "Towering" inspired by the redwoods. Of course, that's right up my alley. I entered "Richardson's Grove" and "Miniature Redwoods".
I'm happy to report that "Richardson's Grove" won 2nd place People's Choice award. I always am excited when a fiber art piece stands up with paintings and other types of artwork. See more about the quilt here.
What an honor to have my quilt featured on Martha Stewart's website.
I was disappointed to notice that they neglected to mention my name or the name of the quilt "Forest Walk". I'm sure it was an oversight. The blog is supposed to feature the National Quilt Museum in Paducah KY, where my quilt now resides.
I'm always happy to see it again

This quilt is a blast from the past. It's large and needs a big wall space to display. It was inspired by my son saying. Hey Mom, one of these days you need to make a quilt of the US with a eagle flying over. So this is what I came up with.
Edge treatment is a bit unusual -
