wish you were here

 

Guest curator -V. Susan Johnson  

I thought of postcards as I searched through the gallery images. Whether they represent real or imagined places, these quilts invite me to go in search of new views--or perhaps new points of view. I chose them for the emotions I think their creators may have experienced as they brought them to life, emotions I equate with traveling to new places. And of course, all travels include thankfulness for a safe arrival home.

I use 113 pieces of fabric and free motion quilting to depict the trees and grass in the forest to show the vitality of nature in another way.
