Small Quilts

The Memorial Art Gallery is interested in having some quilts available in their gift shop during their Wild By Design exhibit from mid-January through mid-March. I'll be meeting with the shop manager after New Year's and plan to take in some of the smaller quilts I've made in the last year.

This opportunity is also good incentive to finish some tops that have been awaiting quilting. This piece is 15" x 16" and was inspired by some sketches of cattails that I did both on paper and with fabric. Now that it's completed, though, it's name might have to be "Lollipops"....

Each "lollipop" has been quilted with 12 wt thread and can be seen if you double click.

The next two pieces are new versions of "Jet Trails," both done in 12" squares.

They need to be quilted and then they may go to the gift shop. Or, I might hold one for the SAQA (Studio Art Quilt Association) 2008 Trunk Show.
Inspector Suki continues to spend the winter evenings at rest on any convenient lap. She likes to anchor herself to the nearest bare skin and is not happy when her human pillow wants to move. She is a constant source of entertainment.

You might call your first quilt Flying Kites. I am glad to see Inspector Suki is getting a good rest.
