Photo by the Dairy Barn Arts Center

It is once again time for my biennial trip to see Quilt National, an art quilt exhibition held on odd-numbered years at the Dairy Barn in Athens, Ohio and attracts entries from around the globe. This year there are 85 art quilts from 28 states and 9 countries.

The exhibit runs through Sept 4, 2107. If you don't get a chance to see it there, you can either view it on line, or catch it on tour.

On Tour

As of this posting, parts of the show will tour to St. Louis, MO and Columbus, OH.

The St. Louis exhibit will be at the Foundry Art Centre from Oct. 6-Dec. 1, 2017.

The Columbus exhibit will be at the Riffe Gallery from Jan. 25-Apr. 14, 2018.

New Hawaiian Themed Wine Glass Coasters and Bookmarks


We recently took a trip to Hawaii and had a great time. Of course I couldn't come home without some new fabric. I used some of that fabric to make some bookmarks...


...and some wine glass coasters. I'll have them at Art on the Lawn this Saturday, Aug. 12, 2017. After the show I'll take them to Village Artisans. And you can also get them from my Etsy shop.

Art on the Lawn, Sat. Aug. 12 in Yellow Springs

Me at Art on the Lawn two years ago.

Art on the Lawn is this Saturday, Aug 12 from 10 am-5 pm at Mills Lawn, 200 S. Walnut St. in Yellow Springs, Ohio. I'll be there under the shade of the trees with my art. There will be around 100 artists, plus some food vendors and live musicians. The show is sponsored by Village Artisans, where I am a member.
