I am so honored to be one of seven different artists representing a sampling of Martha Sielman’s book ART QUILTS INTERNATIONAL: abstracts & geometric in the June/July issue of Quilting Arts Magazine. My quilt “Second Bloom” on page 27 is surrounded by beautiful works from Germany, Japan, Alaska, Connecticut, Colorado and Florida. Thank you Martha and Quilting Arts!!
Wish I could remember where I saw this idea. It seemed like a grand idea to me. Instead of trying to keep the paint off my clothes, I could get the paint all over them! First I bought some canvas from a local hobby store. I’ve never washed canvas before, but thought that might be a good idea. There was a lot of fraying after drying, but didn’t give up. Cut the pattern, serged all the seams and used the final product as my paint pallet! Turned out pretty good, a little heavy but comfortable!
Thank you to all who participated in the grand event. My donation “Sweet Dreams” recently sold at The 2017 Spotlight Auction. The proceeds of the auction will touch every aspect of SAQA’s programs — from superb traveling exhibitions and high quality publications like exhibition catalogs and the quarterly SAQA Journal, to professional and social support through an active and extensive regional network.
“Art is Confession” has been juried into the special exhibit TEXTILE POSTERS – STUDIO ART QUILTS ASSOCIATES and will debut at the International Quilt Festival Houston November 2-5, 2017 and travel to the International Quilt Festival Chicago April 12- 14, 2018
I am ecstatic to announce my art quilt Moment Of Wonder has been selected for inclusion in the special exhibit In Full Bloom 2017 to debut at the International Quilt Festival in Houston. It will then travel for the year to their other venus.

As I opened the blue door, I saw a carpet of tiny green grass sprinkled with last summers golden leaves.
McCall’s “A Little Red” exhibit is made up of 7 of her smaller pieces of fiber art, celebrating the color of red. Her red exhibit coincides with the Museum of East Texas Christmas Tree display.
What a wonderful time of year to share memories with your family and friends.
