I actually 'met' Kay in person at a trunk show I did back in February 2012! You can read about that meeting here. Kay and I were in a slice project with Tommy (The Material Girl) called To Market. in 2011. As we talked that first day, we finally realized why our names were familiar! HA This was the quilt we each contributed a section on (there were sixteen of us). We were juried into the IQA show in Huston
This was Kay's section (with her picture that she had replicate on the right)
And my section
So that was our first connection. After that, Kay invited me to her house for a lunch and we've been buds every since.
Kay is an artist/dyer extraordinaire! Last month and thru March 19th, folks living near Keosha, WI will have been and will be able to see Kay's work as she has over 70 "Ice Tapestries and Shibori Quilts" on display at the Anderson Arts Center! I can't imagine seeing all these pieces in one place!! I have seen pictures on her blog as well as in a book Kay put together and it is awesome to see her hand dyed and shibori fabrics 'show ready'.
I hope you enjoy seeing just a few pictures of Kay's work here on my post. Grab a cup of coffee or glass of wine and head over to Kay's blog here and enjoy seeing all of her creations! It is inspiring for sure. And I thank Kay, again, for introducing me to both Nancy and Beth! You can't beat friends!
