While I did write about finishing the quilt top called HARU, I never shared the professional images of the quilt.
Yesterday on her blog, Third Floor Quilts, my friend Teresa Duryea Wong wrote about the quilt she is entering into the Blogger’s Quilt Fest: Fall 2016 Edition. I had heard about the Blogger’s Quilt Fest but never in time to enter. This year, Teresa’s heads up gave me two whole days to think about it.
I decided I would enter HARU into the Original Design Category.
HARU is a favorite of mine.
Each of the quilts blocks in Wall of Sound was also its own quilt which I called a group. One of which is HARU.
Another is Habanero.
The minis which are 12’’ x 12’’ were created to be donation quilts for the SAQA Benefit Auction which is going on right now.
Habanero Mini is the auction quilt for this year. You can read about it in the post I wrote called Donating Art.
All of these quilts—the minis, the solos, the groups, and finally the party aka Wall of Sound were part of an four person show called fiber at the Fitton Center for Creative Arts in Hamilton, Ohio in the fall of 2014. I wrote about the show and the other artists in this post called Fiber at the Fitton.
HARU is the closure on that project which included a total of 28 quilts—nine minis, nine solos, nine groups, and one party. You can see the entire collection of Color Grids on my website. Well, not the entire collection. Only the ones I have uploaded to the website, but you get the idea. Here is a screen grab of that.
I hope you will take a moment to visit the SAQA Benefit Auction where you can bid on your favorite art quilt. And that you will also visit the Blogger’s Quilt Festival where you can vote for your favorite in each category.
