quilts-2008-0381 I’m really excited to announce that “Playing with Colors” has been juried into the 25th Anniversary American Quilter’s Society Show in Paducah, KY. This was the first time I entered the show and it was wonderful to get a fat envelope in the mail on Saturday.  I’ve never been to Paducah and I’m thinking about trying to go to the show now, but I’ve discovered there’s no easy way to get there from here, so we’ll have to see.

As I mentioned in an earlier post when this quilt was accepted into the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival last month, “Playing with Colors” is part of a series of art quilts exploring the use of a simple improvisational block composed of different colors across the color spectrum. The other finished quilt in the series is “Playing with Crayons,” which you can see in the large quilts gallery on my website. I have another quilt in the series in process and several more in the drafting stage.  Having “Colors” going to Paducah makes me all the more excited about expanding the series.
