Traveling quilts – where to see some of my work

Nonseries Work

Since my blog is in the going through dating process, here’s a catch you up on where you can see my quilts or check them out on other websites. My quilts travel more than do. Sometimes I wish I could follow them to places like Paducah, Houston, Chicago – even Brazil and Europe. But if I did, I wouldn’t be home to create my new art pieces.

“It’s Not Easy Being Green,” Melisse’s depiction of a red-eyed tree frog, has been traveling the US for three years in SAQA’s (Studio ArtQuilt Association) group show, Wild Fabrications http://www.saqa.com/memberArt.php?cat=8&ec=4&ex=53 

“Match Sticks,” juried into another SAQA show “Metamorphosis,” http://www.saqa.com/memberArt.php?cat=8&ec=3&ex=90 debuted  in November at the International Quilt Festival in Houston. Metamorphosis’ next venues will be: Quilt Festival Chicago: March 28 – 30, 2019; AQS QuiltWeek, Grand Rapids, Michigan, from August 21-24, 2019; and at AQS QuiltWeek Fall Paducah, Kentucky, from September 11-14, 2019.

“Seeing the Light,” one of my (74” x 77”) largest art pieces, is at the Texas Quilt Museum in LaGrange, Texas, through December 23, 2018 in a group show sponsored by CQA (Contemporary Quilt/Art Assn)  http://www.texasquiltmuseum.org/exhibits-at-txqm.html

“Sorok,” an older quilt & the first of my “chain” quilts, is at the Pacific Northwest Quilt & Fiber Arts Museum in LaConner, WA through January 31, 2019. It is part of Contemporãneo—Contemporary II, www.qfamuseum.org/exhibits.html  The quilts on the second floor were from exhibitions that CQA sent to Brazil. The third floor are quilts for the same exhibitions created by Brazil artists.

Daughter Julie & I are working on a website at this address. Look for changes & updates in January (we hope!) 2019. In meantime have a wonderful holiday season.  Melisse

  2. Wow Melisse, you do get around as does your name and masterpieces. I searched a number of the sites and was so impressed with what people are doing now. Indeed a real artist expression and a profession unto itself. How great that your hands work so well for you too. Our Christmas letter is about finished says Martin.
    May the joys and excitement of the season plus meaningful worship services bring new enlightenment.
    Love
    Arlene
