Feb 18, 2021 - Quilt displayed in news report

Linda MacDonald's “Lunar Rover” art quilt was displayed in the background on the recent news report of NASA’s Perserverance rover landing on Mars on 18 Feb 2021. The quilt was purchased last year for the office of Simone Dell’Agnello Executive Technologist (pictured) at Italy's National Institute for Nuclear Physics. The quilt previously traveled for three years in exhibits across the U.S. with the “Fly Me to the Moon” exhibit put together by Susanne Miller Jones.[left side]

February 2021

February began the Small Quilt monthly challege with the letter T. Some of the ideas were Trout, Ties, Teepee, TAGY, Texture, Taxi, Tulip, Thread, Trim, Bleeding Tissue paper, Tyveck, and Tulle. In addition several members showed large quilts they made. See photos.

Pam gave an informative program about making postcards, Artists Trading Cards and greeting cards such as birthday, and holidays. She suggested many things that can be used for the backing. Temtex, card stock, old postcards or Christmas cards, and interfacing with watercolor paper are just a few. Use up what you have around the house.
