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 ( 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!


  1. Congratulations on your nomination. Very well deserved.
    You certainly have been busy with all those daffodils and nine patches!

  2. Hi Nan! I don't think my emails are getting to where they need to be..they are floating out in cyber space!

    My publisher is Kansas City Quilts
    I am SO thrilled to be associated with them!


  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?

  5. Hi, everyone -- can you see these photos better?



Thanks for stopping to read my blog. I can't respond to every comment, but be assured that I appreciate each one.
