With this new website Kathy and I hope to periodically keep interested folks up to date on our quilting projects. Hopefully the posts will be informative, thought provacative, sometimes humorous, and most importantly interesting.
Kathy and I have been working on a lot of quilting projects since we took down our quilt show at the Cornelia Street Cafe in the Village. We happily sold a few pieces and we feel it was an exciting opportunity to get our work exposed in NYC. Thanks to all who visited the show, purchased quilts, wished us well, and of course thanks to the staff and management at Cornelia Street Cafe who made us feel very welcome. When in the Village, if you have never treated yourself to the culinary treats at the Cornelia Street Cafe then by all means do so. The food, drinks, and service is superb and they have a long history (dating back to the "Beatnik Era") of supporting visual, literary, and music artists.
At the moment Kathy and I are working on an Egyptian piece that combines fabric images of Nefertiti, Tutanhankhamun, Ramesses II, Horus, Ra, Isis, Seth, Anubis, Osirus, and Amon. We've been collecting Egyptian motiffed fabrics for a long time and this piece utilizes many of the fabrics we have gathered. It is truly a patch work of jewel toned color scraps and Egyptian Icons that takes the eye on a mythical journey. From the expletives that have been exhorted while working on this piece, it might beg to be named "The Mummy's Curse"!
Please check back occasionally to see what's happening with our site and for new posts. Best wishes for Happy Holidays to all!!!
