I feel like I have been negligent, not posting for over a week. And, I have been busy- I finished my last Journal Quilt this weekend, and am now in the process of sewing on the labels and selecting the five to sew onto the sleeve. So, no photos to post of all my work. But, I promise to post pictures of all nine of my Journal Quilts after the Houston show starts.
It will be interesting to get back my 2005 JQ and compare them with this year's. I think my work this year has been more coherent, more focused, and just plain better. I was less concerned about trying every new technique out there, and more concerned about making a strong statement.
And, I'm beginning to wonder what I'll do to fill the void left by the lack of a Journal Quilt Project. It truly has helped me focus and refine my art. I know I have a long way to go, but I'm on the right path. I don't want to lose that focus the the Project has helped give me. Any bright ideas out there?
I do have one "art event" to look forward to this week: Wendy Huhn is giving a lecture on her quilts at the Salt Lake Art Center Wednesday night. I think that's worth a couple of gallons of gas!!
