Coming Attraction: Featured Artist Show October 2018

My local quilt guild, Clark County Quilters, has a special quilt how they host every fall.  It's called "The Featured Artist Show".  It's held to fete someone in our guild (or a group in our guild) who has a large portfolio of quilts and whose collection is of interest to the public.  It is basically a lifetime achievement award that our guild bestows on the chosen quilter.

I was recently selected to be that featured artist in OCTOBER 2018 with a solo show.  What a fantastic surprise and honor.

It's a good thing that I've kept notebooks of all the quilts I've made and have all the stories that go with them.  Now, I'm scrambling a little bit to figure out which quilts to display, get them back from the owners, who are spread out in Alaska, Canada, and the United States, and clean them up and add sleeves if they don't already have them.   I've made 167 quilts (to date), and I think that I can come up with 95 to 100 for the show.

So, here's looking forward to October 2018.  The opening reception will be on Friday October 19th from 5 to 7 pm.  The show runs on Saturday, October 20th and Sunday, October 21st.  It'll be at the H.H. Hall office building near the corner of Highway 99 and 99th street NE in Vancouver, WA.
