“Ryoko No Seishen Tori”©
In case you missed the banner on the sidebar, all of Patchwork Quilting is lucky enough to have a WONDERFUL event available to us this week! It’s the 3rd Annual Blogger’s Quilt Festival! Produced by Amy’s Creative Side (of the same URL as the Festival) and sponsored by many generous patchwork quilting companies, it promises to be a literal treat for the eyes! Thank you Amy!
My submission into this wonderful festival is “Ryoko No Seishen Tori” which roughly translates to “Journey of the Spirit Birds”.
This piece, which measures 53″ x 78″, was made while doing a lot of collaborative work with companies and quilters in Japan. It seemed that at that time a lot of my work was being shown internationally, and while it traveled the world I traveled the United States teaching quilting, or in my studio producing commission work.
I longed to be able to see half the places my art quilts could “see”. Japan was on my “bucket” list. While I have never been able to make that trip I remember all the friends and business associates I befriended each and every time I look at this fun and colorful piece. I travel, with the spirit birds, to those lands I could not physically touch, to be with those that I shared so much.
I encourage you to grab a laptop, curl up on your couch or comfy chair tonight, and browse through all the wonderful submissions to this season’s Blogger’s Quilt Festival! Three guesses what I will be doing tonight… and the first two don’t count! ENJOY!
