“The Organic Landscape” in American Quilter Magazine

American Quilter Magazine March 2013
The March issue of American Quilter Magazine, published by AQS (The American Quilter’s Society), has a gorgeous article about the SAQA Seasonal Palette exhibit.  The Organic Landscape was chosen as one of the illustrations representing summer.  Also seen in the spread above, from l - r, is Reflections of Summer, by Jenny Hearn, Autumn in the South by Nancy Wittington, and Recovery, by Hsin Lin.
Many thanks to AQS for their sponsorship of the exhibit and the wonderful hardcover catalog.

Cyanotypes in “How to Decorate and Embellish Your Fabrics”

Images from several of my art quilts are featured in a recently released book, How to Decorate and Embellish Your Fabrics by Laurie Wisbrun.
There’s a detail from Columbine on the right center of the cover.
More work is shown in the section on Cyanotype, written by Christina McFall.  Christina approached me about providing images because of our shared passion for working with the cyanotype process.  You can read about Christina’s creative endeavors in her blog Meadowlarking.  She has recently moved to Germany and is also highlighting glorious photos of things that catch her eye in Berlin. 

The work in the top left of the page spread is by Suzanne Harlow, and then proceeding clockwise, it features Poke Salad:
Two images from Big Root Geranium:
And a detail from The Organic Garden:

My thanks to Christina and Laurie and all involved in this book project.  It’s always a pleasure to share my work and my enthusiasm for cyanotype with a wider audience.
