I’m pleased to announce that my piece, “Heirloom Pumpkins,” has been selected for the PAQA-South (Professional Art Quilters Alliance-South) annual Members’ Exhibit, ARTQUILTSfreezeframe. The show will showcase fiber art based on photography, revealing how artists find inspiration in photography and how they interpret that inspiration in their art quilts.

The Artists Reception is Sept. 27 from 6 to 8 p.m.; it is open to the public, and many of the artists will be there. (Unfortunately, I won’t, as I’ll be teaching in Massachusetts that day.) 

The exhibit runs Sept. 26 through Oct. 20 in Cary, NC (see details below). Each piece of fiber art will be shown with the photo that inspired it. It will feature 43 quilts created by 30 PAQA-South members, an expert group of professional fiber artists from across the United States who come together to promote innovative fiber and quilting arts. 

To learn more about PAQA-South or to join online, please visit  Sample photographs of previous shows and member artists’ works are available on the website.

My photo, on which Heirloom Pumpkins was based.


  1. Congratulations! Your piece is wonderful. Thanks for also showing the inspirational photo you based it off of. I love the transition of white pumpkins to the full orange ones. Gives me a feel of going from black and white to color.

  2. Hi Susan. I love your pumpkin.
    And Congratulations Love your work,

  3. I am ever so happy that you are in this show!
