My Quilt In NC Gets a Visitor

My friend, Judy, who lives in Georgia, is in Durham, North Carolina for a wedding. I suggested she might like to take a side trip to Cary to see the PAQA South Art Quilt exhibit at the Page Walker Art Center. She did and sent me some photos.

Here is the center. I had not idea that it was such a quaint old building.

Here is Fragments of a Life with a neighboring quilt.

And with a woman who was at the art center serving refreshments. Judy said that she liked my piece! Isn’t she cute?

Thanks, Judy!!

I have accomplished quite a bit over the last few days. I removed the binding from the 12 X 12 water challenge piece and replaced it. It looks much better. I have still been organizing and sorting stuff that was moved for the bathroom/closet renovation. I have a lot of clothes that don’t fit me (too big) and I need to decide what is going to Goodwill and what I might be able to sell on consignment I also got my office cleaned up. When my studio gets too messy, the mess migrates next door to my office. Tomorrow, I will tackle the studio cleanup.

They have completed the demolition of our bathroom/closet and have started framing the new configuration. I can now get a better idea of how large my closet will be. They have been working in such a way that we have been able to sleep in our bedroom. The only problem is that I have a pretty long walk to the guest bathroom in the middle of the night! Speaking of which, I wanted to post this photo of our other bathroom which is even more vintage looking. I will never take this one out. We do want to paint the cabinets another color. I don’t like the dark bronze color. This photo was taken before we bought the house.

    Congratulations on being able to get rid of clothes that are too big!

    Love that Judy was able to send photos of your quilt in situ! It still makes a big impression!

    I do love that bath, and am glad that you have decided to let it remain intact.

    So, I’ve looked over your blog and don’t see any details about Fragments. I wonder if you didn’t blog about it?

    And how exciting to be getting rid of too big clothes! wooHoo

    Thanks to Judy for spotting your quilt in the wild. It’s so great to have these internet friends who can be in geographic locations that we cannot be in ourselves!

    Ah yes, there’s the bathroom I remember! How about plain white trim, or aqua to match the tile, letting it be the focus in there?
