Houston Quilt Festival 2014


This quilt was selected to be exhibited at the 2014 International Quilt Festival/Houston in the Annual IQA Fall Judged Show "Quilts: A World of Beauty"--hosted this past weekend. I was delighted to see my work presented among so many beautiful pieces from other talented artists. It is always exhilarating to show your work in public.

This piece in particular is very meaningful to me. I made it when we first moved to a new city and felt that I needed more than ever, some *peace in my heart*. Once I finished it, I healed and was ready to embrace this new place and meet new people.


This work was made from local papers and flyers I collected back in Florida and, of course, fabric. All the appliqué has been made from two different kind of papers: transparent and opaque. This is one of the workshops I offer titled *Layered Paper and Fabric Quilt*. You can find more details on the right hand corner of my blog.

I also saw my donation quilt for the Quilt Alliance Contest "Inspired by" 2014, which was hanging with many other beautiful contest quilts. You can read more about it here.
