Alaska visit – 7/3-7/6/13

Just came back from Alaska. Went there to install my “solo” show at the Ptarmigan Arts Gallery in Homer, Alaska. I will have some pictures later of the show. For today, enjoy the beautiful Alaska landscape. All these pictures were taken on my ride from Anchorage to Homer or in Homer.

Enjoy!

July 1- my article in the July/August MQU magazine

Do not miss the July/August issue of the Machine Quilting Unlimited magazine.   Look at the name on the cover, bottom left!

I wrote an article about “Using VALUE to Create Impressionist Art Quilts”.  It is in this issue.

What I thought was going to be a 2-page spread is now a 5 1/2 page article with many of my quilts in full, beautiful color.

the magazine is available at Barnes & Noble, Books-a-Million, Jo-Ann’s and on the magazine website:  www.mqumag.com.

I took some pics of the pages and they are below to give you a hint of what the article looks like.
