Columbine and Plume Poppy acceptance for AQS Lancaster
I’m very happy to share that two of my art quilts, Columbine and Plume Poppy, have been accepted for the AQS Quilt Show and Contest in Lancaster, PA, March 14-17, 2012. This is my hometown show, which makes it even more exciting. I’m really looking forward to seeing some of my friends and fellow art quilters when they come to town. It’s held in the Lancaster County Convention Center, which is part of the repurposed Watt & Shand building that’s been an obsession of mine for some time (see my series of ten art quilts about the building renovation here.)
Columbine is a newer work, and this will be its first outing to an exhibit. Plume Poppy is BIG - 81"h x 74"w - and really needs to be seen in person to appreciate the scale.
If you are planning on coming to Lancaster, there will be an unique opportunity to see ALL of the amazing Esprit collection quilts at the Lancaster Quilt and Textile Museum during the show week. More information is here.
