Honors, Daffodils, and Disappearing 9-Patches







"Women's Art, Women's Vision" is the theme for National Women's History Month, 2008. The Lake County Women's Coalition (http://www.lakecountywomen.org/) invited each of its member organizations to nominate one of their members for her contribution to art. AAUW chose me! The honorees were recognized at a brunch yesterday. I was the only quilter. The others were a musician, three artists (oil, watercolor, pencil), a graphic artist, a "sewer" (meaning a seamstress), a photographer, a floral designer, a beauty consultant, and a jewelry designer. It was a lovely event, and I am grateful to my AAUW friends for nominating me.

Quilty progress: I finished six daffodil wallhangings. They'll be hostess gifts when we go to England next month. The pattern is adapted from a quilt by Nancy Breland in QNM (5/02).


Last year I was in a swap for 9-patches made from solids and 30's fabrics. I decided to "disappear" them. The result, with borders, is 54x66 and DONE!

  3. Hiya! I'd like to see those daffodil wuh's a little closer-up, please. Is there a way you can link the thumbnail that's shown in your blog entry to the original (larger) photo?

  4. Nann,
    Congrats on the nomination and I agree, well deserved. I would love to be able to see the 30's d9p better. Is it posted somewhere that I could do so?
