CHALLENGE QUILT UPDATE
I am pleased to report that the challenge quilt I have been working on for months is finished! This piece even made the trip to Pennsylvania and back with me! I am not sure of the protocol involved in presenting a piece of art work that might subsequently be published. So, to avoid any problems I will show you a small detail from the piece. If the art quilt is NOT accepted for publication than I will show you a lot of photos of it. Since the magazine does not come out until June of 2009 you might have to wait a bit (grin). You might recall that I received e-mail from Jenny Doh, Editor-in-chief and Director of Publishing of Altered Couture Magazine, where many of my altered clothing designs have been published. She invited me to submit an art quilt to their newest publication called Art Quilting Studio. As part of the invitation she encouraged me to consider creating a piece for the "challenge" quilt section of this magazine. The challenge was to create an art quilt inspired by a chosen excerpt from "The Little Prince" by Antoine de Saint-Exupery. It was indeed a challenge. Here is a photograph of a small portion of the quilt. If you are familiar with the book, you will recognize the graphic you see. Now, I am freed up to continue my other projects!
