So Busy!

Wednesday, March 2nd, 2011

I spent a lot of time yesterday wrangling this river piece to get the quilting done. Lately most of my quilting has been rather straight forward, but I have done some crazy quilting on this thing.

Mr C and I also prepared the hanging system on all 18 quilts for the Back to Nature show. They needed to have a taught wire, stapled to the wood rod so that they can hang nicely on the gallery system at Trinity.

Today, we hung the show. I think it looks fantastic. I am so proud of High Fiber Diet for being able to pull off this show on relatively short notice. I took some quicky shots with my iPhone. Here is my aspen piece with pieces by Carol Heist and Bonnie Bucknam.

And here is a piece by Terry Grant with one by Karen Miller.

We are having the opening tomorrow night. Here is the postcard that Terry did for us.

While surfing through blogs today, I came across this dress designed by Carolina Herrera and worn by Mariska Hargitay.

Here is a detail:

I just love how shibori and other surface design details are showing up in high fashion. I could easily see a detail like this in an art quilt.

Be sure to check out the Twelve by Twelve blog over the next 12 days, we are going through the book chapter by chapter with some questions for you to answer and then you get a chance to win our book which is getting rave reviews. We are so excited.
