Since returning from our recent trip to Colorado, I haven’t done a whole lot, due to a summer cold.

Some weeding in the mornings when it is cool and some hand quilting in the afternoons.¬† I’m determined to finish the “Oak and Acorn” quilt¬† and am out to the borders now.¬† One long side is done and one short side, almost, so the end is in sight!

“On The Verge”

Saturday, August 12th, 2017

The opening of the EDGE group’s “On The Verge” exhibit last night was lovely! As usual the Sabatini Gallery in Topeka outdid itself and mounted a beautiful show that spotlighted the diverse works of the membership.

My entry, “Layers Of The Flinthills” had a wall all to itself – a purple wall!

My camera had a hard time capturing the exact color, on my screen this shot is closest and gives a more accurate depiction of the sky, as well..

A few other random shots of the show–I’m sorry I didn’t get names for all of them, but artists represented in the show are Dora Agbas, Kansas City; Sharon Bass, Kansas; Linda Beach, Louisiana; Jette Clover, Belgium; Shawn Delker, Kansas; Eileen Doughty, Virginia; Linda Filby-Fisher, Kansas City; Carla Fisher, Pennsylvania; Mary Kay Fosnacht, Kansas City; Karen Anne Glick, Pennsylvania; Karen Goetzinger, Ontario, CA; Karen Hansen, Kansas City; Linda Jurkiewicz, Kansas City; Mary B. Pal, Ontario, CA; Ruth Powers, Kansas, Virginia Spiegel, Illinois; Karen Stiehl Osborn, Nebraska; and, Charlotte Ziebarth, Colorado.¬†.

It’s been so long since I have posted here, I’ve kind of forgotten how to do it! But I wanted to let you all know that the EDGE group’s new show “On The Verge”opens tomorrow evening with a reception from 5:30 to 8:00 at the Sabatini Gallery at the Topeka Public Library, Topeka, KS. My entry, “Layers Of The Flint Hills” will be there, and so will I!

I can’t wait to see what this group of art quilters from all around the world has created. If you are in the Topeka area, I hope you will stop in and see these wonderful art works which will be on display through
Oct 22 .

Also on display currently in Topeka are “Colorado Kids” at the Topeka Art Guild’s Gallery at Fairlawn Mall,and “Spring Encounter” and “Grasslands” at Leaping LLamas Gallery.
