Gallery Statement: The Thread Whisperers have challenged themselves to depict organic and inorganic structures in their fabric art. From the dramatic to the subtle, this exhibit will reflect the spirits of Debbie Herbst, Shirley Perryman, MaryRitter and Ana Sumner through their anthologies of fabric, thread, embellishment and machine and/or hand quilting.

I promised that I would show some photos of work I completed and then revised after a critique session. Here goes the results with “Farm Home: Where My Story Began”. I would encourage emerging artists to find a critique group that can provide guidance. My experience with a small group from PAQA-South was extremely helpful and positive. The revised version won a 1st Place at the Durham-Orange Quilt Show in Durham, NC – August 2014 – in the 1-Party Wall Quilts category.
