“Rituals” book available on Blurb

Book cover art (Left to Right) by - Susie Monday, Susan Fletcher King,
Judy Coates Perez, Desiree Habicht, Yvonne Porcella,
Gerrie Congdon, Gayle Simpson

The catalog book for the “Rituals” exhibition by Dinner at Eight Artists is now available through Blurb. It was designed by Loris Bogue, and you can see inside and order it on the Blurb website. This is the first chance I’ve had to see all of the artists’ work, and I have to say that I feel even more honored to have been included than I did before. This is fabulous work.   

My piece, “I See the Moon,” is one of 42 art quilts in the exhibition, which will debut in a few weeks at International Quilt Festival – Long Beach, July 26-29, 2012. It is sponsored by Moore’s Sewing Centers. (Thanks, Moore’s!)

An exchange between friends.

A handshake. A kiss before bedtime.
The artist at work. A sun salutation.
The wave before boarding the school bus.
A song, a word, a meditation.
A habit, a custom.
The traditional toast at a gathering.
A rite of passage.
The sacred moments of the ordinary.
Rituals:  What are yours?


  1. Rituals! Hmmm kicking my shoes off when I get home from work and deciding what project I want to work on this evening.

  2. Your work in "Rituals" is breathtaking!

  3. beautiful book! I love the feel and mood of your piece.

  4. What a marvelous quilt! I love it. One of my rituals, which I hate, is to roll out of bed and walk before sunrise. We live in the desert.

  6. Really nice! I love yoru piece, the poem and the cover of the book.

  7. Congratulations Susan! I just love your piece and every time I see it it makes me stop and go "AH!" Maybe some day I can see the real deal!

  8. beautiful quilt! I love seeing the full moon and the deepening blues of twilight.

  9. Hi Susan, What a beautiful quilt and I will add this book to my list of must haves. Moore's is a great company...I purchased my first sewing machine from them.
