Okay, did you forget about me?
Quilt Market is less than a month to go.
24 quilts and counting.
No I don’t make them all but lots of organizing, cutting, planning, etc.
Just so you would know that I am alive I thought I just at least post something about where I wish I could go. The following is a note from Dale at The City Quilter.
If you are in the New York area or going there, check it out.
The City Quilter‘s soon-to-open “MADE IN NEW YORK: City Quilting” exhibition showcases 61 outstanding quilts, representing a wide variety of styles. Quilts are underrepresented as an art form in New York, and we believe this exhibit will help bring a bit more attention to quilting–hopefully aided by your editorial interest.The show opens on Tuesday, September 22, at the Williams Club, which is located at 24 East 39th Street. The quilts will be available for viewing from 8 am until 8 pm, seven days a week, through November 14, 2009. Quilts must have been made while the quilter was living or working in the New York metro area. The quilts were juried, the 61 selected from the more than 200 entered. As part of the show, there is a special exhibition of ten Dear Jane quilts to commemorate the 10 years of DJ classes at The City Quilter that have resulted in the growth of a considerable “Janiac” community with an urban flavor.

    Apparently you've had a recent birthday. Hope it was a happy one. What a wonderful exhibit it will be. I agree–quilting is under represented. So glad to know steps are being taken to change that.
