While I want to post more pictures from the Festival of Quilts show, I thought I’d instead post my journal quilt from the Journal Quilt Project II: Elements—Earth, Water, Air, and Fire exhibit, which just arrived home. The quilt is 17×22 inches and was seen in the Fall 2008 International Quilt Festival show in Houston, the 2009 show in Chicago, Illinois, and the 2009 show in Long Beach, California. The 2008 show was different than the journal quilt project shows in the past. It was one 17×22 inch piece to represent a theme, rather than a series of 8.5×11 inch pieces without a theme. Additionally, the quilts were juried.
My piece is called “On the Edge.” The inspiration for this quilt came from a photograph I took at St. James Park in London, England.
You can see my quilts from past exhibits here. Give it a moment to load. It’s a Flash-based gallery which at the time seemed a good idea, but which now tends to bug me as it takes a while to load (so much for that idea!).
