Two quilts in my Colors Of My Life series that you will see in the show.
This is the official announcement and invitation and I hope I'll see you at the opening on January 25th.

The Anderson Arts Center is a very large building and has many galleries showing different exhibitions at the same time. The gift shop is unique. Everything in the gift shop is hand made. The gift shop is changed for each show. The gift shop will be featuring quilts and some other quilt related items for this show, many of them made by me. In addition to the quilts in the gift shop many of the quilts in the show are for sale.
I have been busy getting labels on the back of quilts, hanging rods ready, listing and pricing the items I'm bringing for the show and all those other little details that are part of the knitty gritty of getting ready for a show. I will be delivering my work to the Art Center this Monday.
This is not a clear photo - purposely! I add a photo of the quilt on the cloth label. The photo's are clear enough to identify the quilt, but not so clear that you can really see the quilt in detail. Believe me, the quilts look 1000 times better than these label photos!
I always use beautiful fabric on the back of my quilts. To me using beautiful fabric is like wearing pretty underwear. When you wear pretty underwear you feel good about yourself. When you use a beautiful fabric on the back of the quilt you feel good about the quilt and you do your best work. (It also hides imperfections in your stitching!!!!!)
