One Little Word


In an email from Quilt National!

Happy, happy, joy, joy!!

I'm not sure we can post photos, it's such a touchy thing, you feel you almost have to work under the cover of darkness to make pieces to enter. I work late at night anyway, but still. I have shown the quilt to a few friends and showed it David Hornung the master class teacher at QSDS last year. As soon as I know it's OK I will post photos. It is the first quilt I made using my Sweet Sixteen machine from HandiQuilter.

This has been a busy week, Textile Art Alliance has India Flint in from Australia, holding 3 workshops which are full, Wed Oct. 10 she will give a talk at Cleveland Museum of Art at 7pm. All are welcome. Then I will be attending the Art Quilt Network retreat. October 21 is Textile Art Alliance's Wearable Art Fashion Show and Boutique at Landerhaven. Early shopping and lunch tickets are sold out but the general public can shop from 1 to 5pm for a $5 fee. This is our 9th show so we have it down pretty good, lots of one of a kind clothing. Some fashions are over the top and some quite affordable.

Not to leave you hanging, ok, bad joke. Here is a quilt that did NOT get in Quilt National. Titled Monday, it is from a photo I bought at a flea market. It intrigues me that someone took a picture of their mother hanging out wash.


  1. actually i suspect there ma be quite a few pix around the planet of mothers hanging out the wash...seem to recall it was one of the first subjects i shot with a box brownie too

  2. Thanks for taking time from your busy schedule India. I still have my mother's red box brownie. I always feel sad that someone sold their photos to a flea market, it's my mission to rescue these poor abandoned photos!

  3. Congratulations to a wonderful winner!!! I love the Monday work ! Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart
