Art Council of White Lake, Stories Behind The Quilts Show, Giveaway

Alison Lang Art Doll called Robirda Penguin is pictured above. It was created from felted wools and antique fabric. There was a glass blue egg inside of the necklace pouch around Robirda Penguin's neck.

My Dear Friend Heather is having a Lovely giveaway at her blog called, "A Cherished Life". Heather has made many creative and beautiful Ornaments. A few of her beautiful Ornaments are pictured above.
The above photo is of Alison Lang, Fiber Artist that displayed 2 of her quilts at the Art Council of White Lake, gallery in Montague for the last couple of week. This past Saturday the art council had nibbles and fondue for all the visitors at the show.

I was asked to display three of my quilts. The above photo is of the Autumn Leaf Fantasy Wedding Quilt I made several years ago for my son Shane and his wife Jenny.

This photo is of "The Alaska Quilt" I made back in 1994 to 1996. It was the first quilt I ever made.
This quilt is the second quilt I ever made. I called it "Quilted Sea Tapestry" and was made for my oldest son Mike and his wife Kari.

Some photos of other quilts that were displayed at the show.

This was the first time I have ever displayed my quilts in public. I was anxious about it but all the quilts were well received by the public. We all had a lovely time chatting about our quilts and art.

Judy, all three of your quilts are absolutely priceless, and wonderful heirlooms for your boys! It is hard to believe your Alaska quilt was your first one, it is so wonderful. Your quilts were certainly not lost amongs all the others there, and I know your presentation was from your heart! Thanks for entering my giveaway and mentioning me here on your blog... Hugs.
