The Del Thomas Gallery

If you are a regular follower of my blog, you might remember this quilt.  I made/donated it for the 2011 SAQA auction.  The quilt was purchased by the Thomas Contemporary Quilt Collection.  Del Thomas is one of the biggest supporters of art quilting that I know. Visions Art Museum in San Diego, CA recently named a new gallery after Del.  The Del Thomas Gallery celebrated its opening on February 3.

I was totally thrilled to learn recently that the quilt A Little Birdie Told Me was to be included in the special exhibit at Del's gallery opening, Selections From The Thomas Contemporary Quilt Collection.  The exhibit, which includes forty 12" x 12" quilts from Del's collection, is going to run from February 3 to April 22.  If you are in the area or planning to be going that direction, please stop by the museum and check out the exhibit.

This next quilt is one I made a few months ago but didn't share here yet.  I made this quilt as a gift for Del.  She very generously sponsored the Twelve by Twelve exhibit at IQF Houston 2011, IQF Cincinnati 2012 and IQF Long Beach 2012. Del blogged about the quilt here.
