The show is at the Utah Cultural Celebration Center, a multi-purpose venue. The gallery itself is in a nice, well-lit room. I thought the guild did a very nice job of setting up the show.
Nice to see my piece hung, with the award information right there!
I loved the silk dress that was right next to it.
Being a weaver's guild, there was no lack of useful and utilitarian items.
I loved this rug made from Pendleton wool yardage selvedges.
This bobbin lace was exquisite. I learned that my sister-in-law had tried to learn bobbin lace from the maker of this piece.
Loved the scarves!
This piece was done by another Surface Design member, Diane Hauerter.
And I thought this copper weaving was stunning.
All in all, I thought the show was well done, and I'm honored to have won an award.
I also managed to spend some time in the studio. I had some charm squares, and put them together with white sateen to come up with this small modern quilt. It will probably end up with Shannon- she likes the fabrics much more than I do!
It reminded me of why I like improvisational piecing- but at least I know I can still piece with precision! Now I just need to get it quilted- we'll see which I find less stressful to do, this one or Walk in the Woods 2. But there's no doubt I'll be quilting on something this weekend!
Hope your week is a creative one--
