I was delighted to receive notice that my art quilt, Winter Greens, has been juried into the La Conner Quilt & Textile Museum's 2011 International Juried & Judged Quilt Festival. The festival takes place at the end of September in La Conner, WA.

Winter Greens is one of my favorite of my recent works. I adapted the piece from photos I took at some Paris open markets last January. The quilt is a combination of piecing and applique with beading and decorative stitching for embellishment.
The acceptance comes at just the right moment as I begin work on my next art quilt after a long hiatus due to my traveling. I still feel like a relative newbie to this world of art quilts and this 'acceptance' is a great encouragement to continue my exploration.

How well do you differentiate color?

Time for a quick challenge? One of the email groups that I follow offered this link for testing how well you see color hue. Not surprisingly, I scored well. I found it a fun exercise. If you would like to try, click here.


  1. Judy,

    I love your piece - very rich in color and movement. Took the color test for fun. Did pretty well. Hope you have fun creating new quilts this summer. Keep us all abreast.


  2. Congratulations on your acceptance into the La Conner show, Judy! Well done -- and I like your piece very much. :-)
