Mid Atlantic Quilt Festival 2017

I received an award for Best use of Color at this exhibition. It's really hard to get the color right in the photos, especially when they are taken by different photographers, cameras and lighting.

My studio gets an award.

Well, sort of. My studio got me chosen as my bank's "person of the month". It's a little complicated; a bank staff member is a member of the local art group. I'm also a member of the art group. The bank (which loaned me the money to build the studio) liked my studio so much that they decided to feature it to demonstrate how the bank, a local business, relates to the community and helps out. They certainly helped me out by making the loan. The studio will be featured in the promotional material for the Berkeley Springs Studio Tour 2016. Below are some pictures of the studio.

The front of my studio.

The inside with my work table which is my world when I'm working.

I have no idea what we were laughing at.

One of my Sphere wall hangings.

Some of my hundreds of cones of thread. Quilters have a LOT of thread.

One of my "saying" quilts and some of my fabric
in the background. Quilters (and dyers) also have
a LOT of fabric.

I got some more ribbons at the West Virginia Quilt Festival again in 2013.

Best of Category, Large, Pieced, Individual.

Best of Show Large.

The local newspaper wrote a nice article about me and my quilt.

West Virginia Quilters, Quilt Festival 2012.

I was fortunate to win some awards with my "Sphere" quilts.

The ribbon reads: 1st Place Individual Pieced Medium Quilt.

The tag reads: Spheres V, 40" x 42", is in the Circle Series. I'm experimenting with shapes, printing, dying and using vat dye discharge on the already constructed blocks.


The ribbons read: Purple - Best of Show Large Quilts. Blue - 1st Place Individual Pieced Large Quilts. Yellow - Judge's Choice.
