On the cover

“Fancy Goldfish,” the piece I made for the The Alliance for American Quilts’ 2015 Contest, “Animals We Love” is featured on the cover of the newest issue of Quilting Arts magazine (the October/November 2015 issue). It is going out to subscribers now, and will be on newsstands soon.

All submissions to this contest became the property of the Quilt Alliance, and will be auctioned off soon to support the mission of the organization: “to document, preserve, and share our American quilt heritage by collecting the rich stories that historic and contemporary quilts, and their makers, tell about our nation’s diverse peoples and their communities.” 

I’ll post here to let you know when the auction starts. There are lots of beautiful pieces; please consider bidding on one – you’ll own a wonderful piece of fiber art, and help a great organization at the same time!
