Carrefour European Patchwork Exhibition 2015

In September, I had the honor of exhibiting my work at the European Patchwork Meeting in Sainte Marie Aux Mines, France. The experience and the connections I made with people were very special and I'm grateful I had the opportunity to share my work. I met people from so many different countries and it's a joy for me to observe people gravitating to certain pieces and and sharing with me what they see... 

My partner Adrien was invaluable helping me set up and translating for me! 

I created many new works for the exhibit, and many of them were whole cloth painted with fiber reactive dyes.

"The Guardian" 

It was great to meet in person, many of my FB friends from all over the world.

Adrien speaking to French quilters about my process...

"Alien Territory" 3 panels whole cloth dye painted and free motion quilted.

"Earth Goddess" Whole cloth dye painted and free motion quilted.

"Untamed Symphony"

"Mallemort" Pieced and free motion quilted. This is the first piece I created when I came to France last year.
