Last weekend my quilt guild held their annual Christmas Auction with proceeds going to charities and some funds to sustain the guild. Last year I donated three large quilts, but this year had only one to donate.

I'm very excited about the opportunity to present a a trunk show to the Gold Coast Quilt Guild August 8th at 1:00 in Morro Bay at St Timothy's Church. In preparation for this event I've been going through all my quilts and wearables putting them in chronological order. I've been creating quilts since 2000 when I made one for my mother for her to take to the nursing home she entered.
Above is "Into the Redwoods" which I made after taking a class from Susan Brandeis at the University of Minneapolis in a summer workshop in 2009. She taught us how to enhance and print photos onto fabric and then use hand stitching to embellish them. This one is printed on silk

My friend Joyce and I went to PIQF last weekend. Usually this show is very well attended, wall to wall people. Instead of fighting crowds of avid quilters looking for just the right fat quarter of fabric, there were hardly any people there. It made it very easy to take photos of the beautiful quilts that are always in attendance there.
Our Cutting Edge Quilt Group had a special exhibit entitled "Personal Journey with Racism". Each member created a quilt to express their individual experience with encountering racism. Below are some pictures from that exhibit.

My good friend Phyllis sun printed over
a blue and grey lovely printed top which had silver and gold
cranes images. You can see a little bit of one of the crane images
poking through on the right top corner on the photo below.
