I'm a QAM Cover Girl!

I am doing a major happy dance about the fact that my art quilt "Airstream Dreaming" is on the cover of Quilting Arts Magazine - June/July  issue!   I am thrilled, honored and ever so thankful.  A dream come true!  Can you hear me shouting whoohoo!  The Travel issue!  Let's go on an adventure!
My article is in the section "off the page" about keeping a sketchbook for textile artists.  This is a Moleskin Storybook Sketchbook that I carry with me.  It is a unique sketchbook, because it has 1" and 2" squares to fill with your drawings.
'Airstream Dreaming' was made in 2012, especially for the "A Year of Art" fundraiser for the American Cancer Society, that Virginia Spiegel heads up. I have done a series of art quilts based on trailers, which were all created out of drawings in my sketchbook.
