My art quilt Gathering for the trip south is going for a trip.
The AQS show in Grand Rapids in August is the destination.
I was surprised when I recieved my packet in the mail.
How exciting to get accepted in the show.
April and I were going to the show anyway.
Now I can pose for a photo with one of my quilts
hung for display for a real show.
The idea for this quilt came from my past.
Back in the 80's I was looking out the kitchen window
and saw a flock of robins land on the crab tree by the garage.
What a sight.
The tree was pruned to a ball shape.
So there was this ball of flapping tweeting Robins.
They were attracted by the fruit.
The tree was stripped clean in minutes.
A nice way to commerate my memory.
I find that if I create my art from what I like
the end result is much better.
Have a great day all.
