Though the road was arduous (at 5:30 a.m. I found that my flight to Atlanta was cancelled, and thus ensued a 12 hour journey including a frantic drive to Nashville to fly to Chicago to fly to Columbus to drive to Athens all the time wondering what the heck I was doing this for …)
I am surrounded by inspirations and welcoming women with like minds. A joy to discuss art, take in the work and process it all with a luxury of time. I will have a full palette of new thoughts upon my return. My quilt, Global Warming, the great unraveling, was juried into the show and will travel for 2 years.I am honored to be a part of this talented group.
For an entire published compilation of the works, purchase the book Quilt National 2011, The Best of Contemporary Quilts by Lark Press. Even better, make the journey to Athens (sans AirTran and connections through Atlanta), the show will not fail to surprise.
