Quilting Arts Magazine

Yesterday was the big day when the October-November Quilting Arts Magazine arrived in the mail.  This month’s issue features Rituals, a special art quilt invitational exhibit curated by Jamie Fingal and Leslie Tucker Jenison.  This is their fourth annual exhibit, and I’ve been fortunate to have been selected to be in each one to date.

But the most exciting year to date is this one, because my quilt got a full page spread (page 43)!  Based on the theme of rituals,I was inspired by a quote from Robbie E. Davis-Floyd, Ph.D., who compared rituals to a set of “cosmic gears.”  I used a photo taken by my friend and travel companion, Paula Chung, when we visited the Eiffel Tower in 2011, of the gears that lift the Tower elevator.  I Photoshopped the photo, drawing out the hidden colors, and turned the photo on its side.  Then I had it professionally printed on cotton sateen as a wholecloth, which I then machine quilted.

If you are interested in a catalog of Rituals, here is a link to Blurb, where you can purchase a copy:

Jamie and Leslie do a wonderful job of curating and exhibiting their annual shows in addition to their teaching schedules and time spent making their own beautiful artwork.  Many thanks to them for a job well done every year!
