Cover Girls, Exhibition, And Vacation, Oh My!


We certainly are starting our vacation off with a bang. For one, we were interviewed for the latest Patchwork Professional magazine, which just hit the newsstands. Patchwork Professional is published in Germany, so we had double the fun answering our interview questions in German. Yes, the editor was a bit surprised at that! The best part, of course, was when we found out that they used one of our quilts for the cover! Here it is:

Patchwork Professional 3/2017

If you’re in Germany, we hope you can find a copy and send us a photo of it displayed in the store. We’d love to see it in a rack among other German publications. Thanks in advance!

You can see our “cover” quilt in person at Bay Quilts in Richmond, CA, which brings us to our other great news: the artist reception for our solo exhibition this past Sunday. (Yes, we have to come up for another word for our solo exhibitions since there really are two of us!). It was fun to meet up with some good friends:

This exhibition would not have come to pass, if it weren’t for a chance introduction to one of our newest friends, Johyne Geran. We were shocked at how many mutual friends we had, yet we had never crossed paths before. Thank you, Marcia Russell, for bringing us together. Because of Johyne’s recommendation to Sally Davey, owner of Bay Quilts, our work is now hanging at the store’s gallery throughout July. Thanks, Johyne!

We can’t end this post without wishing you all a wonderful and peaceful summer. We are taking some time off to tend to ourselves, our houses, our families, and to just having some good times. Look for us again in the fall.
