Braving the Elements

The Elements: Earth, Air, Fire, and Water. That was the theme for the 2008 Journal Quilts challenge. The QuiltArt community, from which all Journal Quilts come, wanted to see those that won't be hung at Festival this year.

Linda Minton volunteered to organize an on-line show of the quilts "released" due to space requirements for the show in Houston. The show 'Braving the Elements' is now online for you to see. G. Armour Van Horn (Van) volunteered to handle the technical aspects of creating the on-line exhibit and I thank both Linda and Van for presenting such a wonderful show.

I have a piece in the show. 'Blue Ocean, Turquoise Sea' uses my sheer collage technique. It is machine pieced, collaged, embroidered and hand beaded. Here are some closeups of the piece.

This a really evocative piece. Thank you for sharing the site of the exhibit. I have just visited and think they are stunning. Enjoyed watching you on TQS which, of course led me to your blog which I shall certainly revisit.
