Cinque Terre Wins Another Ribbon

Cinque Terre triptych had some good news from the Smoky Mountain Quilt show in Knoxville, Tennessee, last week, where it won a third-place ribbon in the Alternative Techniques category. We love opportunities for the three 24" x 52" sections to be displayed together. The picture below is from the Gulf States Quilting Association show in April earlier this year.

A special treat this week was getting to visit with dear friend Ana Maria Diaz Herrera, a talented viola player who returned from two years at the Julliard Institute in China and is on her way to Rutgers University in New Jersey to pursue her doctorate.

Despite Elizabeth's passion for eating thread, I was able to finish several art quilts recently. Some of my Southern Fiber Artist group makes 8x10 pieces to exchange with each other on a rotating monthly basis. Here are pieces I made for Julia Graber, Jackie Watkins, and Karen Arzamendi.
Climate Change for Julia Graber

Leaves for Karen Arzamendi

Lime and Leaves for Jackie Watkins
