Wow, my first year is going fast! I have been so lucky to have so many people trust me with their quilts. Please visit the Gallery to see the results.
In January 2018, I joined the Friendship Star Quilters Guild located in Gaithersburg Maryland. Not only did I learn about new quilting techniques and about the “art form of quilting” but I met some truly wonderful people who care about the art as well as community service. This week we are having a Quilt Show at the Montgomery County Fairgrounds.
I submitted my first competition quilt, Astronova. My friend Lorie C. and I collaborated to create it. Our assigned theme was twinkling stars. We researched for inspiration and found that stars were born in nebulae and that black holes might regulate the star’s formation. After image searching, we became enthralled by a photo of black hole. We loved the play of color and texture and decided that this would be theme. Check out the gallery for a quick look.
