There is a catalog available for Quilt National in a variety of places.

The book Art Quilt Portfolio: People and Portraits has a related exhibit. As one of the featured artists, I chose two of the pieces in the book to be in the exhibit, which opened at IQF in Houston, Texas, in late October 2013, and will be traveling through 2017, apparently…

Both Fully Medicated

And I Was Not Wearing a Life Jacket will travel with that exhibit…

Hopefully not ruffling too many feathers. The traveling exhibit took these quilts to the Texas Quilt Museum in La Grange, Texas, January-March 2014; and they will then go to the Festival of Quilts, Birmingham, England, August 7-10, 2014; and on to Festival Internacional de Patchwork e Arts Afins, Curitiba, Brazil, August 27-30, 2015, thus proving yet again that my quilts have better vacations than I do.

Earth Stories opened at Michigan State University Museum, Lansing, MI, on May 11, and will be exhibited there through November 26. It then travels to the University of Central Missouri Gallery of Art and Design, Warrensburg, Missouri, January 19 – February 28, 2015. The larger piece is Wise Choice, 72″ square…

The smaller piece, 12×14″, is Planting Choice

I recently finished a new piece for the SAQA Celebrating Silver exhibit opened at IQF Houston October 30-Nov 2, 2014; and then will travel to IQF Chicago, March 26-28, 2015; and Quilt! Knit! Stitch!, August 13-15, 2015. This is Awakening the Crone

It will also be at the Festival of Quilts, Birmingham, England, in August 2016.

    Love your work. Thanks to controversy, I found you. Perhaps the negativity will bring more focus to your thoughtful, well-executed works of art. Not your Grandma’s quilting….but I am a Grandma and a quilter and I for one love what you are doing. Thanks

    This is good stuff. Just because we work in fabric doesn’t mean we shouldn’t attack ‘adult’ subject matter. There are quilt shows and then there are quilt shows. And btw, I’m 54 years old and sick and tired of the notion that female genitals are somehow shocking or disgusting. Men? Their ‘bits’ are on display in every art gallery on earth, turned into architecture, enshrined as a major form. Just because ours don’t dangle out the front doesn’t mean they’re gross.

    I’m sitting in the UK following the controversy surrounding your quilt. I find it amazing that there are still people in the world finding the female/male body “disgusting”. I wish more quilt/textile artists were making political art like yours. Well done to you and those who are prepared to face the critics by presenting such work.

    Your work is incredible, and not only visually rich in content, texture and subject, but richly thought provoking! Long may you continue.
