Geisha In The Snow

58x78

It's been a while since I have posted. I have been working hard and I have finally finished my Geisha In The Snow quilt!! I am literally down to trimming the last of the threads. For those who don't know, I have a step-by-step blog about the making of this 4 year long art quilt. Yes, 4 years! There was some time it sat waiting for me to get back to it while we packed up our house in VA and moved to PA. And, there was some time it sat waiting for me to figure out how I was ever going to finish it. It was my father who inspired this creation by handing me a printout at Christmas time 2011. I know my dad would be pleased with the final results. I had originally planned to enter it into the Hoffman Challenge of 2012, but it immediately exceeded the size limitations and I realized it was going to take me quite a while to finish.

   A few have asked where I will be showing this quilt, hoping to see it in person. I will be entering Geisha In The Snow in the AQS Syracuse contest. I know the competition will be tough.  I have been out of the quilt-contest circuit for a few years now, but I have my fingers's crossed that my Geisha will be awarded a prize.

For those who are on Facebook, I really spend most of my time posting there. You may want to stop by and check out my page. I welcome inspiration and conversation, but please submit ads to personal sites and pages to my Yahoo group-ArtGiftsEtc. on Sunday.
