I’ve attended the Quilt National show at the Dairy Barn Arts center more than a handful of times over my teenage years. We used to visit our family friends in Athens, Ohio, where the show originates every other year. As my interest in quilting grew, I found myself inspired by the skillful and innovative work demonstrated at the show, dreaming of the possibility of entering the show myself someday. That day came today, when I submitted my application online.
Making its debut, is a wall hanging that I call “Southern Sunset.” I hand-dyed all of the solid colored fabrics, improvised the top, and quilted it with modern echoing and straight lines. I’m really happy with the end result.
Here she is – after months in the making!
Modern Sunset, 31″x39″. Hand-dyed cotton solids, blended batting, thread. Completed July 2014.
