How “Twilight in the Bronx” became cover art

A while back I shared the journey of “Twilight in the Bronx”.  This quilt has been in two shows winning ribbons without me being able to see it hanging in either one.

I was able to have “Twilight in the Bronx” on the set of Quilting Arts TV.

And now “Twilight in the Bronx” will be the cover art on Generation Jones CD “Gallimaufry”.  Generation Jones is a folk duo from Chipping Campden, UK, I like their sound.  They’ll be playing at the American Museum in Britain in  June.  When they got the gig to play at the American Museum Geoff & Jon visited the museum and got interested in quilts.

Geoff approached me on the blog about 2 weeks ago asking if they would be able to have permission to use an image of “Twlight in the Bronx” as cover art on the cd.  At first I thought this was some kind of spam so I didn’t respond to them.  Geoff was persistent and contacted one of the other “Quilt Designers” blog ring members for my email address.  Good move on his part.

I was able to do some checking around at that point and after emailing back and forth a bit we were able to work out the details.

I can’t quite tell you how excited I am that “Twilight in the Bronx” will be cover art on their CD.  I’ve been able to see the entire play list and what clinched this for me is one of the songs on the list is James Taylor’s “You’ve got a Friend”.  Bob and I fell in love to this song.

Happy Quilting!
