Quilts and Other Stuff from Frances

Nature Exhibit

There is a wonderful place just outside of my town called the Sandy Creek Nature Center. They have classes, exhibits, walks, and everything imaginable to help teach people about nature.

Many years ago, our quilt guild provided them with a donation quilt that they raffled to raise money for the center…..

Various members paper-pieced the birds and then I made the center applique and finished the top.

Well, this year the center is celebrating its 50th anniversary, and the local library put on a small art show to help with the celebration.

I submitted “Botero Flower Garden” and it was accepted in the exhibit……

It was a small selection of art and housed in the “quiet room” of the library…..

(And there is that carpet again!!)

I was pleased to see a few other fiber pieces included in the drawings, paintings, and photographs.

This quilt by Sarah Hubbard is a favorite, although I hate that the lighting was so poor….

“Everyday Magic”

Also included was this fun applique from Sue Lawrence…..

“Woodland Meander”

Again, the lighting leaves much to be desired!!

Karen Holmgren presented this fun piece…..

“It’s Now or Never (Mayflies)”

Margret Agner is a silk painter and her butterflies were mesmerizing…..

“Feeding on Flowers”

Finally, although NOT fiber, I love the work of David Hale, a local tattoo artist…..

“Bird Song”

He achieves so much dimension in his work by adding layers of interest.

As I said, it was a small exhibit but SO much fun to be a part of!!!

Here’s to 50 more…..

One of my favorite things about quilting is to motivate others and help them in their quilting journey. As part of this endeavor, I LOVE to present programs and workshops to groups and guilds around the world. All of my programs work well with Zoom meetings and I would love to speak to your group.
