I am thrilled and honored to have my art quilt, Clan of Misfits,
accepted into the "Best of Dinner@8" quilt exhibition debuting Houston
this November at the International Quilt Festival.
This is the 10th and final exhibit of "Dinner@8",
an amazing exhibit curated by Jamie Fingal and Leslie Jennison.
My work begins with dozens of empty, and used tea bags,
most specifically from Celestial Seasonings. I use hand-painted papers and
fabrics to create collages on each bag. Machine sewing and hand stitching add detail.
The bags are then arranged on a background and appliquéd with more stitching.
This piece measures 30''X50".
Thank you Leslie and Jamie for curating this amazing exhibit and accepting my work.
