Dinner At Eight - Affinity Exhibit

Seeking Red
40" x 40"
I spent some time, in the past few months, creating this art quilt. I couldn't share it with you here because it was being made for a juried exhibit entry. I am so happy to share with you that my quilt was juried into the exhibit and will be shown at the International Quilt Market (Oct 24-26) and Festival (Oct 28-Nov 1) in Houston; Sponsored by Havel's Sewing. Forty art quilts, 40x40 = 40x40x40.

The two women behind Dinner at Eight, Jamie Fingal and Leslie Tucker Jenison, have been doing themed invitational exhibits for several years and have put together some great exhibits.

If you click the Dinner at Eight link in the previous paragraph, you will see all the artists who were selected to be part of the exhibit. I am overjoyed to be included among this group of wonderful art quilters. 

We had to create a quilt to the theme of affinity. You can read more about the theme at the link above.

Each summer I seek out the flash of red that flits around my honeysuckle bush. We get ruby-throated hummingbirds in my area and I so enjoy watching them. They in turn, have an affinity for red colors and they love my honeysuckle.
