The Pick Museum: Quilts and Human Rights

6 Sep

11

There it is, my quilt for equality hanging in The Pick Museum of Anthropology at Northern Illinois University. I got see it all trussed up looking fabulous next to some other amazing quilts!

The entire evening was overwhelmingly amazing! I got to meet so many unique individuals, and the show, in general, was amazingly curated. I’m so pleased to have a quilt there among such beautiful art pieces! Later tonight, I’ll write up why Cole Hall at NIU is so significant for the anthropology museum. I’ll also post some of the better images I find from the evening!

For now, I have some pictures from the evening to share. My camera died, so they are all taken with a cell phone, so bear with me. Continue reading

I know I’ve been neglecting everyone again, but with good reason. I’ve been swamped! Work is picking up, I have a couple of new button vending machines debuting, and I have to go to NIU for a show tonight!

Tonight, I’ll be the at The Pick Museum of Anthropology at NIU. I’ll get to meet the Reverend Jesse Jackson , and hang out with some amazing people! I’m so excited! They even used my quilt for the promotional material associated with the show! Ahh! I’ll post pictures of the show tomorrow! Wish me luck!

Hope Everyone Enjoys The Eclipse Responsibly!

Here are some basic rules!

• Here in Tennessee, we may have the best view, but we’ll also be the first to be sacrificed.

• Animals may behave strangely. If your dog speaks like a man, heed its dire warnings.

• Don’t trust the squirrel with a child’s face. It speaks only lies.

• When your double arrives, resist the urge to fight it — it may be stronger than you. Chances are, it will disappear after the eclipse, but be careful it doesn’t switch places with you, because it’ll be a few decades before you get the chance to come back.

• If you stare into the void, and it blinks first, you win. But the prize is insanity.

• Werewolves are not only impossible to kill during an eclipse, they become SUPER werewolves.

• Whatever you do, don’t buy any weird plants. We don’t want a repeat of last time.

• Apophis, the Moon Serpent, may try to eat you. Let him.

• Remember, no matter how salty your (gay best friend) is, the moon still throws the best shade.

• If once upon a time you were falling in love, but now you’re only falling apart, there’s nothing you can do. This is a different kind of eclipse.

Thanks to Justin Alva for posting the rules!

I’ve become an Ambassador for the BadAss Quilters Society!

What does that mean???

I’m not sure, but I get to write articles for the BadAss Quilters Society, so that’s pretty cool! I get talk to fellow quilting badasses, and be awesome all the damn time! In fact, I’ll be writing my first article tonight!

Wish me luck!

Quite A Bit Going On…

I know I have been MIA again. My day job is getting busy, and I’ve got so many commissions, it’s ridiculous. However, I do have some fun news to report! My Quilt for Equality is on the NIU Museum of Anthropology’s website! (Click Here) The exhibit opens September 5th, and I’m very excited for it! It’s a 2 hour drive, but I’ll definitely make it up there a couple of times.

I’ve also been working on my quilt for Anthems 2017, and now I’m making a second quilt for the show to focus on Trumps feelings on transgendered people in the military… I have to order more fabric!

Other than that, life is just full of general debauchery. Maybe I’ll post a picture of what I have so far for Anthems.

Wish me luck!
