Donating My Orlando Tribute Quilt

When I started work on this quilt, I wanted to donate it to some charity or have it auctioned with the proceeds going somewhere worthy. Well, two days ago I got an email from someone at the Human Rights Campaign, and they were looking for items for their silent auction, so I decided that my memorial quilt for the Orlando shooting victims would be at the 20th Annual Human Rights Campaign National Dinner and Silent Auction held on Saturday, September 10th in Washington, DC at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. I feel honored that I was invited to donate for the silent auction, and I know it is for a good cause!

The pictures are a bit darker. I was playing around with filters on my camera and thought these looked the best. They really capture the sadness of it. I’m just in love with this quilt. I’ll be sad to part with it. Now I just have to finish it. I have 7 more equal signs to go, and then I have to quilt and bind it! Wish me luck!

Better Pictures of Alice in the Garden of Eden

This is not a new quilt by any means, but I finally got around to taking better pictures with my new digital camera. Finally people can see what it really looks like without the haze from a lack of pixels. Goodbye crappy photos! I’m thinking of submitting this one into a local art show, but I’m not sure if it fits the bill. Wish me luck!

Happy Pride!

Since I didn’t make it to pride this weekend, I felt I needed to do something! I made this top while working in my basement. I wanted to go, but it was too hot to be out there while I’m still sick and with an ear infection, but next year nothing is going to stop me. I still have to add some borders and then figure how I’m going to quilt it. I really like it! Hopefully I’ll quilt it soon! Wish me luck!

Hope everyone who went to pride had a fun time! I was there is spirit, but also watching Sense8 while in my basement sewing!I think Sense8 was a good choice to watch sine I’m staying in on Pride.

Remember to always love yourself! Here’s to love!

Blueprints In Progress

This piece was made for an art show, but it didn’t get in. Bummer. Oh well. That just means that it will be going in the county fair. Speaking of the County fair, I’ve really got to get everything ready and start packing it up. I’ll have a lot of pieces going in! Wish me luck!

Channeling Heartbreak

I didn’t really didn’t know what to do with myself. I keep reading news articles about the Pulse massacre, and it was just heartbreaking. I decided I really needed to do something productive before I let the depression set in. I decided to do a whole cloth quilt with equal signs on it. One for each of the victims. Hopefully I’ll have the top done by tomorrow night, and my plan is to auction it off somewhere and donate the money to a charity based in Orlando. Wish me luck!

Quilt For Equality

2013.76.1a-1.small

I was planning on bragging about how wonderful it was that I got published in a book for my quilt on gay rights, but now I’m at home heartbroken after this unspeakable tragedy. This catastrophe that made me feel uncomfortable and empty, I decided to channel my grief into a new work inspired by the continuing struggle for gay rights.

Updates to come on my latest works later in the week.

More Fabric Paint Fun

It’s Sunday. The temp has cooled down. I’m still getting over this cold. I have so much to do, and I can’t help but playing with my fabric paint. I did finish a wall hanging piece though. S that’s at least a little productive! Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go and do some laundry, and piece some fabric for a belated wedding quilt! Wish me luck!
