March 2010 Newsletter

The 2nd annual Quilting Retreat at Aunt Polly's B & B is coming up, March 19 - 21. There are a few spaces left at the B & B, so make your reservations now by calling either Maggie Alitz at Aunt Polly's (518/582-2260) or me at 518/370-1667. This year's focus is on designing your own blocks and quilts, with emphasis on color and fabric choices, the math involved in sizing elements and blocks, and how to design borders and quilting patterns that will enhance the overall WOW factors of your quilt. Whether you are a beginning quilter or a seasoned veteran, there will something for you. The atmosphere is relaxed, the food is great, the quilters are friendly, and it will be a great weekend. Everyone will go home with a top fully designed and ready to be completed. If you are fast, you may even get your top done, but I never put pressure on my students to quickly finish a project - I want it to be a work of art and finished well without stress. Plan to join us!

Capital Region Textile Artists and QUILT Inc Show in Albany
The Capital Region Textile Artists and QUILT Inc of Delmar (NY) currently have a show at the Albany (NY) Visitor's Center at the corner of Clinton St and Broadway in downtown Albany. There is truly something for everyone. The show includes a full range of quilts - traditional and modern. Featured are two "slice" quilts made by 12 members of CRTA with 6 artists working on each quilt. One quilt is of the Albany skyline and the other is of the Troy (NY) waterfront with the Hudson River in the foreground. The project was started as a part of the celebration of Henry Hudson's travels up river 400 years ago. The quilts were made from photographs taken by my husband, Larry and me, which were blown up and then cut, with each quilter receiving one "slice" of the photograph to reproduce in textile. Each quilt measures about 60"x45" when all 6 slices are hung together. Many different techniques were used creating two unique quilts. Stop in to see the slice quilts and the rest of the show! The Visitor's Center is open daily. For more information go to www.quiltinc.org.

Albany Center Gallery Benefit in April
Knock It Off is the theme of the Albany Center Gallery (downtown Albany, NY) fundraising exhibit to open on Friday, April 23, 2010. The participating artists are challenged to choose a well known image and "knock it off" by creating an original art work using that image. The art is then auctioned and sold as a benefit for the gallery. My contribution is underway. In addition to making a donation of art to the cause, this year I have been asked to serve on the planning committee for the exhibit. It will be a fun project to be involved in. Plan to attend if you are in the Albany area.

Art 'Round Town
I have recently been honored as Guest Artist on the Art 'Round Town website (www.artroundtownonline.com) and will be participating in some of the upcoming activities of this Capital District-based group. In June the group will be installing an exhibit at the Five Rivers Center in Albany County and plans to hold a family fun day on Saturday, June 5. Kid friendly activities and mini workshops will be offered all day, so plan to join us!

" Five Rivers Family Day is June 5 "

Other Happenings
Over the next few months there are several things coming up. The Capital Region Textile Artists will be presenting a trunk show and talk at QUILTSchenectady, talking about the slice quilts and how this project evolved. We will also be showing some of our other current work. I will be judging the Hudson River Piecemakers show and lecturing at the Wings Falls Guild meeting soon as well. I'm looking forward to both of these events.
