Hanging out at Quilt! Knit! Stitch! In Portland, Oregon, with my quilt in the Coming Up Roses exhibit. This quilt is called" Rose for your Nose?", and it's an oldie from 1998. I made it for the Rhapsody of Roses competition, and it has been to Houston, Quilt Expo in Innsbruck, and La Musee des Tissus in Lyon. Yes, it's my husband.

Did I mention that I had cataract surgeries in July? The second one was just over a week ago. I have been amazed at how much brighter the world is. Colors are less muted. So I made this bag to celebrate color. I just didn't expect to be wowed in this way. Blues are particularly beautiful to me these days.
It will be fun to tote this around at Quilt, Knit, Stitch in Portland.

What I really want to talk about is the fun multi media project I'm working on for my First Friday Artists group. We each made a list of 5 things we would put in a box to signify us. Then we drew the lists out of a hat, to do with whatever we wish. It will be a gift for the person who made the list, so I can't share it now. But I will in December!
So I am posting photos of a group quilt I'm involved with for an auction, for Flying Geese Quilters. I'm making embroidery stitches on the handles while we figure out how to quilt it. Suggestions?

Scroll down to find my post. Here is a detail of my quilt for the Reflections exhibit. It is called "Saffon in the Park."

After we left family in New York, we stayed a night on Cape Cod. Then we spent our final time in Boston. Our hotel room had a great view of the harbor.
One day we braved the subway system, the MTA, and visited the wonderful Museum of Fine Art. There was an exhibit of the Pilgrim and Roy collection of quilts. There was some framed art to complement the quilts. Quite nice.
