I met Mary Kerr a couple of years ago in a business class for quilters she taught at Maine Quilts. Very shortly after this Mary sent out an invitation to a number of quilters to submit quilts for her new book now titled “Cutting-Edge Art Quilts” being published by Schiffer in the spring of 2013.
What Mary doesn’t know is that I very nearly bailed on the whole project and it was her email right before the due date that not only made me rethink bailing but get a new quilt done for the book. I realized in that email that the new project did not have to be big, that small would work well. I’d be heading toward more work with whole cloth on silk and recently purchased a few spools of Superior Kimono silk. (Have I ever mentioned I love Superior Silk?)
Serendipity was created that week. In a matter of about 20 hours I quilted a 12″ square of decorator weight silk, silk batting and cotton on the back.
I love this little quilt and now that “Serendipity” the quilt that started the series has been in MQX Portland I can share it here.
As soon as I know the official publication date of the book and when I can get my hands on it.
I’ll have more on the blog give away in a few days. I added 2 new deadlines in the last couple of days.
