Today is the day!

I am excited to share some good news with all of you, and the only thing that could make this day better is if I could be in Ontario, California at the Museum of Art and History!  Why?  My quilt, Gypsy...Eclectic Bohemian is part of a juried quilt exhibit at the museum.  This is the press release announcing the new exhibit: Modern Quilts:Redesigning Traditions.  
The modern quilt movement is nearly a decade old. It started in the early 2000s as an online community of like-minded quilters. These artists were inspired by modern design, bold colors, the use of negative space, and alternative fabrics. Today, modern quilters continue to embrace a style usually not seen in traditional quilts. This Summer the Museum and Guest Curator Georganna Hawley worked to promote an open call for entries for the new exhibit, Modern Quilts: Redesigning Traditions.  As a result, over 90 quilts were submitted by talented artists across the United States.  Join us as we explore a juried selection of 40-plus modern quilters from the United States and abroad as they consider traditional patterns in new and exciting ways.
            This exhibition was organized with support from Road to California: Quilters’ Conference and Showcase.  For more information on Road to California visit:

And here is my quilt....

I am hoping to receive pictures from the reception!  

What kind of fun things are happening to you today?  
Bella and I spent the morning by the fire, reading and relaxing before getting into the holiday business that tends to take over.  Now to the sewing room!

grace and peace....Sharon
