MY BLANK CANVAS

About 80 by 72 inches I’m using my windowsills as a design wall since I’m lucky to have 12 foot ceilings. It’s black felt I found in the garbage washed and sewed together.  Probably someone’s leftover Halloween costume.  

It’s going to be filled with opulent fibers, dark colors, twisted felts, plastic, metal & a bicycle chain.  All representing intense grief but gradually turning toward hope.  

“My Grief Quilt” has finally started.

IQA quilt show review by Kathy Schmidt

Show in review
by quirksltd

Had a last minute opportunity to hop on a bus and head for Chicago to see the IQA Show. I’m not one to miss a chance like that, so off I went.
The red and white quilt display was spectacular! The selection of quilts from the “500” was also wonderful. Loved visiting the vendors and the Open Studios demos were great to have. But my heart was taken by the SAQA exhibits. I took some pictures–yes, I remembered to take my camera!
This is what I will remember from the 2015 IQA Chicago show——–
