Denver National Quilt Festival Acceptance

I'm happy to announce that Big Root Geranium has been juried in to the Denver National Quilt Festival, April 30 - May 3, in Denver, CO. It features cyanotypes on silk--I was so pleased with the way the prints of the delicate blossoms turned out--along with handpainted and commercial fabrics in silk and cotton, and a lot of hand beadwork. I think it does a good job of capturing that moment in late spring/early summer when the perennial geraniums bloom, so the timing of the Festival seems especially appropriate.

This is the first quilt that I chronicled in detail as a work in progress; you can read about it by clicking on Big Root Geranium under Labels in the sidebar at the right.

Cool! You'll have to let me know what the show was like. I often wish I was as well traveled as my quilts.
