My Favorite Text Messages
There are a zillion little sayings around my house. They have been cut out of magazines and books, collected from inspiration material, and my Farmer's Almanac calendar. I hear something, it goes on a sticky. I line my desk. I am starting to cover the door in my sewing room.
This quilt was created in response to a SAQA (Studio Art Quilters Associates), call for entry - Text Messages. The exhibition showed how text messages have become a popular method of communication.
I saw this as a great opportunity to put my favorite sayings (even though I missed a few), on fabric. Each cell phone was individually designed. It will hang in my RV and when traveling, this quilt will be used for inspiration and a smile.
