Friends of Festival

I have started receiving a new newsletter entitled Friends of Festival. It is a new venture from IQF to keep us informed and up to date on what will be happening at the IQF quilt shows.

There is a link there about my friend Wendy Butler Burns who is the Jewel Pearce Patterson Scholarship recipient this year. I hope you will take a minute to wander over and read about Wendy as well as check out this new e-zine newsletter.

I am working in my studio all day today. I am trying to get my entry for Houston done on time. I have three weeks before I start traveling again and I should be able to get it done. Wish me luck.

The last month I have been trying to make a small quilt every other day. Small meaning under 20”. So far so good. Here are two of my favorites so far. You know not everything that you make is always going to turn out the way you want it to and you are not always going to like everything that you make. But these two I am happy with.

Woodland secret

I love "Blowing in the Wind", the shapes, the movement really speak to me.

Both quilts are lovely, but like Karen, I love "Blowing in the Wind." I was thinking the exact same words she used, it "speak[s] to me."

Beautiful. I particularly love "Woodland Secrets".

Oh, Frieda, these are so magnificent -- I wish I could turn out works like these "every other day" -- I'd be happy to produce just one of them in my lifetime!

These are both beautiful, but I particularly love the movement and light in "Blowing in the Wind." Your work is so beautiful; good luck in Houston!
