After Camp and Quilt National

After camp I headed to Athens, Ohio to check out Quilt National.
Here I am outside the Dairy Barn, I was very excited to make it down for the show.
Some of my favorite pieces were:
Bob Adams’ Infrastructure No. 32
Mary Lou Alexander's Glacier
Sue Brenner's Display II
Marianne Burr's Spin Out
Kathleen Loomis’ Memorial Day
Kathleen McCabe's In His Shadow
Judy Rush's Silence
Daphne Taylor's Quilt Drawing #9
Sandra Woock's Blue Bamboo/Blue Breeze
Kathy York's Little Fish In A Big City

Susan told me to stop by this shop to see her friend John Lefelhocz.

Sherry Boram was kind enough to welcome me into her home for a comfy night's sleep on my way back to Chicago from Athens. Here she is with her husband Lary.The highlight of the trip was my time with Sherry. She gave me a personal tour of all her artwork. I left feeling truly inspired by all the different techniques and materials she has used and explored in her art. I now plan to experiment more in my own work. I loved seeing her beautiful studio and meeting her delightful husband, who built their house from the ground up and all their furniture in it. He was kind enough to give me a tour of his studio too.

The next day Sherry and I went to Indianapolis Art Museum before I headed back to Chicago.
Here I am in front of one of my favorite sculptures by Robert Indiana.
