Today, Oregon’s Regional Arts and Culture Council purchased my wool quilt, entitled, Winter Eddy, for their Portable Works Collection! Each work in the collection hangs for 6 months to 5 years either in a City of Portland or a Multnomah County building where the public can enjoy it. Winter Eddy was inspired by watching water flow over river rocks during frequent hikes in the Columbia Gorge.
I attended the gala grand opening of OPUS VII Gallery in Eugene, Oregon last night. They showcase a compelling blend of design, architecture and art that’s worth a visit if you’re in the neighborhood. The opening show was tastefully curated and featured two of my large format quilts – one wool, one linen.
Here is the first small wall quilt made from my Shasta Collection fabrics, Wild Garden, 42″ x 42″. I chose just the prints from the Summer Blaze color combination and combined them with a few solids. Great fun and very summery.
