I just learned that three of my Fierce Winds quilts have been accepted into an exhibit called Climate Crisis: Solutions at the Water Street Studios in Batavia, Illinois. I'm so pleased as this is not a textile show so it was a bit brave of them to take the work. If you are anywhere near Chicago between March 20 and May 2, please stop on by!

Here's a piece I recently finished for a Quilts on the Wall challenge. The theme is graffiti and my piece us called Lascaux21. Much of it is from photos I took at a skate park in London; other bits are pix I took of an array of scribbled writing on one of the shrimp trucks on North Shore Oahu. Then I cut some screens with my OWN tags. Can you find them??? After all the printing I both embroidered on it and appliqued "peeling paint" made from fabrics I painted heavily with oil paints and which took AGES to dry.
