Tomorrow the proof of my zine will be ready for approval. I am so
excited. Suzanne Staud, the graphic designer already made her
minor corrections and said the project looks fabulous. Continue to
check this blog for news on when you can order your personal copy.
To pass the time, I have been busy in the studio making art quilts
that are due for fall exhibits. I will post photos and information later
about where you can see the new work. Since I have learned how to
use Mistyfuse in my work, making new art has been such a fun and a
quick way to satisfy my need to be creative. Our family reunion this
summer renewed my interest in ancestors, family history and memories.
I have been revisiting some of the photo transfers I made for my book
"Six Color World" published in 1997 to use in the new work.
I am having so much fun!

APNQ Quiltfest 2008
I just returned from Seattle after working on the judging panel
for the 2008 quilt entries. There were 289 quilts from which
to select the top winners in each category. After one day to
enjoy shopping opportunities in downtown Seattle, we had
3 days of teaching. This was the first time Quiltfest added
classes and they were very successful. Check out the website
for APNQ to read about Quiltfest and plans for 2010.
