Lovies for Susan

This is Susan's quilt.
The girls from Fiberarts council SCal yahoo group* made blocks and I assembled and quilted them. *

And, of course, my ever-present helper, Rascal. He really, really liked this quilt!

Starbright, Starbirth...(the green one)
Hanging in Houston at the International Quilt Festival
Although I did not win a ribbon, I am a winner just because of where it is hanging!
Thanks Carolyn Sower for the pictures.
I'll post some close-ups later.

More about SOME GAVE ALL:

the Breaking Traditions Exhibit [With One Voice] is to give a voice to all those who stand up and say "I will make a difference".
I made three other quilts prior to this one. One was two small, and one too large, and none honored a particular person or group...then this one popped into my head at the last minute. It is part of a quilt I have had in my head for a couple of years.
The final quilt also has a dog-tag wrapped around the rifle. I found mini dog-tags on eBay, and wasn't sure they would arrive in time, but they did.

TWO quilts for posting:

SOME GAVE ALL: thank you

for Breaking Traditions: With One Voice

and my 2008 Journal Quilt

The Elements

This year the Journal Quilts in Houston (IQA) were juried. 48 out of 300 were selected.

Of course I am sorry mine was not selected, but it didn't do what I wanted it to.

Each element had a gradation of colors, and I wanted them to move, mingle, and affct the others.

The quilt may not be a loss...I thinking of reworking it, but haven't figured out what to do to it!

The quilt is not a loss: it was fun, I learned and I had to think...

the technique is from Dena Crain's "Darned Quilts" at Quilt University.
