I just got news that this quilt, Haze and Hope, will be a part of the International Quilt Association special exhibit Tactile Architecture 2013.

The exhibit will premier at Festival in Houston in October and travel to the other IQA shows in Cincinnati, Chicago and Long Beach. Since I'm moving back to TX, I have definite plans to attend the show. I'm really looking forward to it.

Here's a detail shot of one of my favorite sections of the quilt. I was perplexed by what to put in that wide strip of magenta. I decided to free-motion-quilt a variety of wacky looking botanical shapes and I love how it turned out.

I love the Tactile Architecture special exhibit. They have it every year. The first year I went to Festival in Houston in 2007, I was particularly taken with the theme, variety and inspiring pieces in this particular exhibit. My friend Lu said to me, "You could totally have a piece in this show!"

So the next year, I entered and was accepted! This piece is titled Construction: Concrete and Stone.

I was honored to be in Tactile Architecture again in 2010 with this piece, Framing Flourish.

So, that's my little mini-Tactile Architecture collection. I am so eager to see the other quilts in the 2013 exhibit! I'll have to wait until October.
