Friday was a "newsy" day

To celebrate Sisters in Cloth's exhibit at Guilford Free Library, we hosted an Open Meeting and invited art quilt friends to share the moment with a big Show and Tell.  Above is Betty Warner explaining a recent challenge while sister Barb Adams looks on.

Crowded around, we were all interested in Cher Hurney's pieces that she brought back from her recent workshop in Santa Fe with Katie Pasquini Masopust.  They were wonderful...and inspiring.

Claire deLombaert brought one of her Kaffe Fasset inspired pieces.  She recently was one of the featured artists at an exhibit at Willoughby Wallace, which included this piece.

Old friend Judy Siccama brought an amazing work, showcasing her incredible sense of color...okay, and precision piecing.

Karen Loprete delighted all (as usual) with her playful, colorful work.

The event was such an overwhelming success that before we left, we all decided it HAD to be annual.

Then the "news"...awaiting our return home was an yahoo announcement from one of our Sisters who was absent from the meeting.  Vivika Hansen DeNegre apologized for her recent absenteeism with a grand announcement:  She has been selected by Quilting Arts to be the new Editor!  We could not be more proud of "our" Vivika!  Quilting Arts will undoubtedly be the better for having her...and we will bear up, missing her input at our meetings, but none the less, very happy for her.

  1. Hi, Diane. Amazing quilts you show here and in the Rumor show. What a pleasure it must be to be part of this group! Also really liked your Sentinelle from Dijanne (I like hers too). I think it's marvelous that she's sharing her idea.
    Happy holiday stitching!
    best, nadia
