“The Bluest Eye” featured in Quilting Arts magazine

My quilt, “The Bluest Eye,” is featured in the August/September 2007 issue of Quilting Arts magazine! It was named as one of five “Judges’ choice” entries in the 2008 Quilting Arts Calendar Competition. The magazine will be available at larger newsstands and at Barnes & Noble bookstores nationwide on August 7.

To make this quilt, I started by creating the image (below) in PhotoShop, merging photos of my blue-eyed daughter's eye with that of her African-American classmate.


  1. I got my magazine a few days ago and saw your quilt and your name and I said I "know" her. Congratulations, that is so thrilling to be in such a great magazine (my favorite).

  2. Woo-Hoo! Congragulations, Susan, that's a fantastic quilt. It definitely deserved to be a Judges' Choice!

  3. I love your quilt, very graphic and eye catching! LOL Congratulations!


I love it when you leave comments… Otherwise I feel like I'm just talking to myself! If you have time to write, please let me know what you think.
