Dinner @ Eight acceptance!!!!

My entry, Fiberarts Compulsion, has been accepted into the Dinner@Eight exhibit for the Houston IQF show this fall.  I am thrilled to be among some truly skilled, rockstar artists in this group.  The theme this year is Affinity.  Something you are drawn to, have strong feelings for.  I decided to focus on designing art quilts, which is my current obsession.
I chose a split complementary color scheme of yellow-orange, blue and violet.  I used an old iron as a reference, and designed a portrait, landscape and still life in progress on my design wall and ironing board.  As you can see in the detail shot, I quilted it with words, thinking of things I have an affinity for.  As I was quilting, I kept singing, "These are a few of my favorite things" from the Sound of Music.
I love the choice of theme, and can't wait to hear what next year's theme will be!
