The Red Egret art quilt 

              Here’s the other art quilt I’ve finished, the Red Egret, I began this art quilt with silk painting the                                   background. While doing that I roughly blocked in the color areas where the features of the design would later be placed. The egret was created almost exclusively with thread painting,

A nice thing happemed

A funny thing happened.

A woman had a friend call her to  tell her about an art quilt she had just seen. The friend thought she might be interested in seeing this quilt.  The woman who received  this call was the editor of the publication, County Register. What was the result of this conversation?

I received an email from the editor of  County Register. She wanted my permission to use one of my art quilts  on the cover of the publication.  I answered “Certainly”.
