I just finished my last show of the year this past weekend, so I can get back to blogging more regularly. Thanks to everyone who stopped by to see me the last couple of weekends at my shows in Great Falls and to all those who have given me such positive feedback on my solo show at Katie’s Coffee at the Old Brogue Restaurant in Great Falls. It’s so much fun to see old friends and make new ones! See my earlier post for information about the Katie’s show, which will be up until Dec. 30.
“Charmed Zebra II” at right is hanging in the Small Works exhibit at the Great Falls Foundation for the Arts Gallery at 1144 Walker Road, Suite D in Great Falls. It is open Saturdays from 12-4 and by appointment. Visit their website for more information at
This piece is mounted on a 12×12 artist’s canvas. I used improvisational piecing with the zebras as the focal point and touches of red to spark the black and white color scheme. It is quilted using several different motifs with black and white variegated thread. Then I created a background using red with insets of black and white and stretched the whole piece over the canvas. It’s a cheerful piece that would be great to brighten up a small space in a kitchen or office area, perhaps.
