One Tree Quilt, winner of the Olfa Okada Young Designer’s Award at AQS Paducah this year, is looking smashing in the November 2008 issue of Quilter’s Newsletter magazine!  Thank you to my fellow art quilters who kindly alerted me that my piece was included in this issue.  The Olfa publicist let me know they requested permission for photo use back in April, but I thought they had decided not to print it.

Thank you, Quilter’s Newsletter magazine for including my piece!

Interview in American Quilter magazine

I look a little un-enthused in the photo, but I am very excited in real life! The July issue of American Quilter is out on newsstands and stores near you, celebrating the AQS Paducah show with a whole page for One Tree Quilt (and me!) Go and check it out. My lovely head shot in the magazine was taken by a fabulous and talented friend of mine, Beth Jacquot. None of the head shot photographers received credit in the magazine, so I thought I could at least give her props here on my blog. Thanks a million, Beth!

AQS Olfa Young Designers Okada Award 2008

I’m delighted to say that One Tree Quilt has won an award at the AQS Paducah, KY Quilt Show this year! It received the Olfa Young Designers Okada Award. I am completely excited and honored. This piece is an extension of a 2007 weekly journal quilt that was so intriguing that I decided to make it on a larger scale. Go weekly art! My husband really encouraged me to make this piece on a larger scale and so he is super excited about tHIS award. :)

And yes, I can’t wait to spend the $5000 on art quilting supplies. Here’s looking forward to stimulating the art quilting economy.

If you are lucky enough to be at the show right now, please stop by and smile! All of the AQS award winners can be seen here. By the way, I would like to point out that 3 of the Alzheimer’s Forgetting Piece by Piece artists won awards in this show. Congrats to Diane Gaudynski and Becky Goldsmith.
