Quilt Market Houston 2010

If you attend Quilt Market as a wholesale customer or vendor, be prepared to see this quilt. Selected from the book 500 Quilts edited by Karey Bresenhan and one of the featured exhibits at
Houson 2010, the image of my quilt will be featured on the Quilt Market catalog, tote bag and pin. I am excited, and I hope you will be too when you get to take home a small remembrance of my art. See you all at Quilt Market Houston.

New from Old quilt contest

The Alliance for American Quilts has a contest every year and
the quilts are auctioned as a fund raiser for this wonderful organization. My design uses images from previous entries I submitted so that qualifies as the old part, the new part is bright new fabrics. I titled the quilt Redotwo Ten, referring to recycling my designs, and redoing images of houses and giant flower trees. The actual quilt is very bright colors, 16" square, my phone camera doesn't compensate for light. Visit the Alliance website to hear more about the eBay auction later this year.

Historical Photo! Yvonne's Fashion Show

Many years ago I agreed to do a fashion show of my wearables. The local newspaper took this photo. I photocopied the photo and hand colored it to use it in a new quilt titled "Talking Through the Fence". The quilt top requires machine quilting, some day in the future.
