Debra told me it was really neat, and was set up in a labyrinth.....that is really cool, and especially so for Deb as her quilt shows a labyrinth!
I mentioned in an earlier post that "View from the Abyss" was accepted. On thing I never really thought about when making it is.....what it would look like on a black drape (the most common color used in shows. Nina-Marie Sayre was kind enough to take this shot and send it. I'm not sure....while it blends in with the backgound, maybe it makes it more mysterious and draws people in to look more closely. Debra's husband noticed that the people who spent the most time looking at it were men.....Hmm.
Eleanor Levie posed the question on her blog and on the Quiltart message board do quilter's resemble their quilts? For me....I think it is a resounding NO.
The photo below was one of the last ones taken with my real hair.
This photo is one taken with my current wig. I like color, never wear black. While often rumpled, I am not stringy or heavily textured. So....I don't think I look like my quilts at all....especially not the most recent....but even my earlier ones, although they use a lot of color.....I don't think I resemble them at all.
But.....if you get a chance, go to the Sacred Threads show. They are also having some classes and special activities in conjunction to the show and have made available a catalog and a CD of the quilts on exhibition for purchase. For more information, go to the website here.
