I’m thrilled to announce that Kaleidoscope has been accepted for exhibit at QuiltCon 2020! I got the notification a little while ago, but life has been a little crazy recently and I realized I hadn’t made the announcement on the blog–better late than never!
QuiltCon 2020 will be held at the Austin Convention Center in Austin, TX from February 20-23, 2020.
This is my first acceptance at this show and I’m looking forward to seeing Kaleidoscope hanging in Austin with so many friends and other artists I admire.
I designed Kaleidoscope as an exploration of freehand curves. The curved units were all cut without templates or marking using my rotary cutter as a drawing tool. I enjoy the improvisation of it–you can’t make the same cut exactly the same way twice, so you have to embrace the process as you go. I stitched organic vertical lines into the piece with a variegated gray thread to keep the focus on the lines of the design.
You can read more about the creation of this piece here. Looking at the process images in that post, I think I have another idea to move this series forward–I love when that happens!
