Aileyn had another piece juried into a SAQA exhibit. Her Succulents is in SAQA’s Tranquility exhibit which premiered at the International Quilt Festival in Houston last November. A photo of Succulents was also published in the Oct/Nov 2016 issue of Quilting Arts magazine and the detail of Succulents is featured on the cover of the exhibition catalog.
While in Texas last fall. Jean drove to Austin and delivered and installed a commission piece for a friend who had a challenging space to decorate. She made Blue Stone to hang in a 13 foot tall, 17 inch wide niche. It fits beautifully and looks spectacular. Each leaf is hand painted and hand appliqued – a labor of love for a special friend.
Jean’s two traveling pieces, Reflection – World Trade Center, in SAQA’s Celebrating Silver exhibit, and Roofs of Mumbai, with Quilt National ’15, are completing their travels in grand style. Roofs of Mumbai will be shown in Wisconsin at the Quilt and Fiber Arts Museum and at European Patchwork in France. Reflection – WTC was in Birmingham England and Shanghai last fall and will be shown at two venues in Australia. Then they come home!
Jean and her granddaughter, Tia, collaborated on a piece of art last fall. Using Tia’s art work and two layers of organza separated by a clear rod, they created this ethereal piece. Tia is such a talented artist. Jean hopes this is just the first of many collaborations.
Below are the 10 by 7 inch pieces Jean and Aileyn made and donated for SAQA’s 2017 Trunk Show.
