QuiltToon in National Exhibit

Paschalis.Judy-Tents Are Home-FULL

I’m proud to say that one of my quilts was accepted to be shown at the International Quilt Festival in Houston that starts today.  The International Quilt Festival has a special exhibit with the theme of “Home.”   I made mine about the millions of people who call  tents their homes because of war.  It will be shown at the Houston and Chicago Festivals  during the course of the next two years, and perhaps at other venues.  It is one of 19 quilts selected for the “Home” special exhibit.

The quilt is 50″ X 50″ and uses and appliqué; machine appliqué; fused appliqué; machine piecing; machine quilting; hand embroidery;  painting; beadwork and embellishments (clothes pins and clothesline).

Completed in 2014.


About QuiltToonist

I'm a news junkie and have opinions about everything! I consider myself a folk artist because I have no formal art training and use the sewing skills I learned many moons ago to accomplish the fiber art I seem to have to express.
