 Publication Times Three

 I was delighted to recently learn that I will have three quilts included in the upcoming book 500 Art Quilts!  Published by Lark Books, it is described as “an inspiring collection of contemporary work.”


My three pieces to be included are, Reconciliation


Ti Plants

Ti Plants A-Glow-Glow

Out of the Blue



and Out of the Blue

Each applicant was allowed to submit three pieces.  I guessed there might be sections with a variety of themes, so I sent three very different pieces.  It seems  my strategy paid off.

More info on the book can be found at .

Harwich MA – dual membership

Well…I may as well join the bandwagon!

I am a SAQA member and I have created a quilt called the Lost Heroes Art Quilt. It honors the service men and women who lost their lives in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. The quilt was dedicated in Washington, D.C. in late September at the Time of Remembrance and it will travel for two years around the United States.

If anyone is interested, you can visit the website:  There is also a ompanion book whose proceeds (100%) go to Snowball Express, a charitable organization that supports the young children of the fallen.

Also, I’d love to know if there are any art quilting groups in south Florida that I can become a part of.

I also live in Massachusetts for part of the year.

Maureen is no longer a co-rep as she has adopted a new machine and has no time for other things as she  is …. “in the middle of moving my studio (long story) and setting up a longarm business.  i have no new work to report. aargh!!!  well, hang on… I’m going to have two pieces in the lark “500 art quilts” book due out next spring.  and I’m going to be in a three person exhibit at the Tallahassee airport next year.”

 Attached is my lastest quilt.  It’s 15 x 17 and I just finished it.

Half a Pear

  I haven’t even put on the label yet.  I haven’t given it a title yet, but it will probable something simple like just “Pear”.  I hate coming up with titles to the quilts.
