Rain, Resilience and Rainbows Exhibits at International Quilt Festival

My quilt Rain, Resilience and Rainbows is definitely on my mind today. I had planned a short vacation for this weekend, but the rainy weather forecast caused me to cancel. I am so sad about that, but I did not want to sit in a hotel room watching it rain even if the hotel is on a beautiful island. Rain Resilience and Rainbows reminds me that there will be many other opportunities to escape for a short vacation.

Meanwhile, if you are in the Houston area October 28-31st, check out the International Quilt Festival. There will be over 1200 quilts to ooh and ahh over, but I don’t want you to miss Rain, Resilience and Rainbows. She was juried into the In Bloom exhibit. I am so proud of her. Many thanks to Kim McLean for creating such a beautiful pattern and Carolyn Duke for doing the exquisite custom quilting for me.

The picture does not do this quilt justice even though Ron Witherspoon is a great photographer. Take a selfie in front of her and tell me whether you agree.
