SAQA Blog post

I am a member of SAQA and they have recently started a regional group for Missouri, Oklahoma and Kansas.  They have also started a blog for this region and I was featured on the blog!   http://saqa-ks-mo-ok.blogspot.com/2013/08/featured-artist-candyce-copp-grisham.html  Pretty exciting.  Just another way to get your name out there.  Thank you Shannon.

Matchstick quilting

I recently took a workshop with Jacquie Gering (fabulous teacher and person) and was fascinated with the quilting on her Bridges piece.  The quilting was an 1/8th of an inch apart.  With some advice from her quilter, Sheryl, I tried it and I am very happy with the results.  It's a bit tedious but it works. The piece is more pliable than I thought it would be and actually will benefit by being mounted on another backing.

Display at Urban Eats

I am certainly an irregular blogger.  Wanted to catch up so here is one fun thing done recently.  Art Bits - a branch of the Bits group that focuses on art quilts - has been hanging pieces at Urban Eats www.urbaneatscafe.com in south St. Louis.  I took 4 pieces in and they are so fun to see up. Several of mine are in the first picture to the left and the rest of the group to the right and in the second picture.  It's a great space with a wonderful hanging system.
