Austin, Texas was the place to be last weekend. It was the inaugural conference of The Modern Quilt Guild and there was excitement in the air. The conference was well-attended, with 1500 pre-registered participants; total attendance figures have not been released. The modern quilt movement is attracting new as well as veteran quilters!

Ann Woodhead and I visited "our" quilt in the exhibit there. I pieced "Orange Improv" and Ann did the wonderful machine quilting on it.
Saturday, February 9 is the next meeting of Art Quilts Maine, an active group of art quilters from across the state. We currently have a traveling exhibit "Postcards from Away" in which the artists interpreted a real or imagined fabric postcard. Here is my 20" x 30" post card quilt depicting a lovely pink bromeliad I photographed in a tropical garden on Grand Cayman Island.
