How exciting to see my piece Taking Time to Text in the April/May 2014 Quilting Arts Magazine! (Available in both printed and digital editions.)
A gallery of selected works from the traveling SAQA Exhibit: Text Messages, are featured beginning on page 32. I saw the exhibit last October when it premiered at the International Quilt Festival in Houston. In the magazine you will see samples of the diverse pieces in the exhibit that interpret the theme. My own is pretty literal, showing people actually texting. Using my iPhone I snapped photos of family and strangers using their mobile devices. I drew images from the photos on my iPad that I then printed and stitched (by hand and machine) onto fabric to create my piece.
