Back from Houston... 

I just got back from Houston but I'm already back on the road and in Lake Tahoe for a workshop with Valerie Goodwin. I had an amazing time, to say the least, and was so happy my husband could pull himself away from the office to go with me. We took a ton of pictures, and I've posted only a handful, but I'm too exhausted to actually comment on them. When I get back home, I will, and there will be a lot more coming too. :) 

My quilt "A View from Above" won first prize in the Art Abstract Small Category, and "Life in the City" won an honorable mention in the Art Abstract Large Category. I was pretty blown away by everything, and look forward to elaborating further...

This is right after the awards ceremony.

I haven't seen these two ladies since elementary school!

A relaxing break...

After all of the dyeing, and prior to that, months of working long hours to meet deadlines, I've enjoyed a decent hiatus. It's nice to be sewing again, and it's fun to work on a few quilts for Project Linus before I start my next project.  :) 

When I start a quilt for Linus, I usually let fabric inspire my design.

More good news... 

"Quilts have been selected for the All That Jazz: Improvisational Quilts which will be exhibited in January 19-22, 2012 at Road to California."

Sunset Cinema has been selected to be in this special exhibit curated by Ricky Tims. I'm super honored to be included with such an amazing group of improvisational artists. :)

Congratulations to everyone!

Great news from Houston!

I received a call last week and my quilt "A View from Above" has won a cash award. Quilts: A World of Beauty is held at the International Quilt Festival in Houston. I won't find out until November what I've won, but I was pretty shocked and excited. It's my first time entering, and this is the biggest show in the country. This is my first award. 

In addition, "Life in the City" won an honorble mention, so that was amazing. I will receive two ribbons! 

I'm humbled, grateful and looking forward to going to the show in November.
