|The old scale belonged to my dad, and a button jar belonged to my mother. My sister and I spread their ashes at sea last weekend. Many of their favorite things have become my treasures and are in my studio. I love that.

|And this is my most recent work 'Rama Lama Ding Dong' for the Dinner at Eight Artists exhibit 'Affinity.' It measures 40x40 and I am over the moon about it. The exhibit of 40 quilts will be shown at International Quilt Market and Festival in Houston this fall. Click here to visit the d@8 artists blog. This exhibit is co-curated by me and Leslie Tucker Jenison.
