Art of the Barista

The Michigan Quilt Artists Invitational 2011 is now in the Greater Flint Art’s Council gallery in Flint, Michigan, to begin touring for the next year.  I managed to make it to the gallery after work on Thursday and take some photos. I’d love to show you more, but I won’t show other people’s work until I get permission from the curator of the exhibit.  For now, here’s my entry, called

Art of the Barista




If you get a chance to see the exhibit as it tours the state of Michigan, please take the time to enjoy the artists’ work.  Lots of great ideas in this show!

Kitty-approved crib quilt

Top done 9172011 003

I finished sewing the top for my grandson’s quilt today… it actually went together pretty quickly, and a couple of hours today saw it done.  Now to put the three layers together and quilt it. I know the colors aren’t “baby like,” but for the first year he will be living in the master bedroom area, which is brown.   I’m hoping to have the  machine quilting completed by the end of next weekend.  The little guy isn’t due until early November, but I wanted to get it done early so I don’t have to worry about it.  And, I have other projects in the works as well.

Just so you know, it has been carefully checked out by the local quilt inspector.

More photos when it’s all done.
