Posts Tagged ‘MQX East’

Yes, I have been away from blogging for a while — no better time to restart than with happy news to share!

My silver quilt ‘Reflections of Tao’ is at MQX East in Manchester, New Hampshire.  The show is open from Thursday 4/10 to Saturday 4/12, and there are hundreds of amazing quilts on display and lots of fantastic vendors — be sure to visit if you can.

I attended the awards ceremony and was excited to find out that Reflections of Tao won first place in the category of small wholecloth quilts.

I was stunned and thrilled when Reflections of Tao also won Best Machine Quilting of the ‘Sit Down’ quilted quilts.   This little quilt is 24″ square  – I think the signage and ribbons are almost as big as the quilt!

You have to see this quilt in person to appreciate the subtleties and shading created by the many different colors of silk thread I used.   I also used trapunto to create more dimension in the major motifs.

The wholecloth quilts are hanging in the Armory at the Radisson – you’ll see the Expo Center when you first arrive, but the Armory is the smaller, cozy exhibit and vendor hall on the other side of the hotel area.  I hope to see you there!
