Fall in Maine

I have been absent, not posting for a while. I wish I could say I was busy finishing quilts, but not so. Although I did deliver over 35 quilts to Kimball St Studios in Lewiston for Art Quilts Maine's second annual show! It is beautifully hung and it is not too late to view it. We have just decided to keep the quilts on display until October 29, so if you are in the area, stop by. Click the link for information on the gallery. Included in the show is this year's Travelling Challenge Quilt Show, the theme of which is fabric manipulation. The Travelling Challenge will be at Portland Public Library next, during December and January. Some truly creative pieces in that group!
We also traveled to Florida and Honu found a home, hanging on a wall at Jerry's Mom and PaPa Joe's home. It really is the perfect spot for this wall hanging, since we went with them to Hawaii, on the trip that inspired Honu.
I teach a full class tomorrow at Sew Portland on Free Motion Quilting. If you didn't get into this session, I'll be scheduling another one--maybe after the holidays. Meanwhile, work is progressing on the wedding quilt commission and a new round robin series.

I recently made up a new batch of Quiltini Pins and will be looking for opportunities to put them out for sale. Once I get started they are addicting to make--each a tiny, embellished quilt with glitz and glitter!


  1. HI Rana, I made my first quilt square in a class in September then made that into a pillow. Then I made a Hallloween table runner with my own design. Now, I am making my first ever quilt about 64 by 70. YOU are amazing as always.

  2. Thanks! Is this Sharon H? Happy you have found quilting--such a great hobby. Haven't you been a bit busy lately?

  3. I saw this exhibit recently. Beautiful! Very interesting quilts and liked seeing the creativity of fabric manipulation. Very nice show!

    1. Hello Stephanie. Nice to see you are still kicking around the art world.
