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.
