I received an email recently about the travelling exhibition of banner quilts for Beneath the Southern Sky. I was lucky enough to have my work accepted for this and am always excited to hear about its travels around the world. I would LOVE to go to the Festival of Quilts in Birmingham, in the UK and see it in August but, alas, will not be able to. Here are a couple of links to some of the showings of the works. (Smilebox, American Quilters Society)
It is even going to South Africa - oh to be able to go and see them in another country. I saw them twice in Australia, at the AQC and the Craft and Sewing Show last year but it would be even more special to be able to see them internationally.
I am so grateful to Brenda Gael Smith for organising the exhibition and putting in all the hard work to have it shown in so many venues. I am still amazed at the fact that I am in an exhibition with so many wonderful textile artists.
My piece in the exhibition was inspired by eucalyptus trees and their wonderful trunks. I am still taking pictures of trees and branches, fallen or on the trees! (Just look at my last couple of posts.) There seems to be a theme here.
