Ashville Made

I'd like to introduce you to Judy Simmons (if you already know Judy then you can skip reading my post!  HA).  Judy is a fiber artist who lives in North Carolina.  

I found Judy's blog from following Mary Stori's blog, The Inside Stori.   One of Judy's  recent post was on a magazine article she appears in.  This local (free) magazine is called Asheville Made and Judy's article is in the June 2018 issue.  You can read it online here.   It's a very interesting article on how Judy got her start in the quilting and art quilting world.  Facts I didn't know! 


Judy, along with Mary Stori and Karen Weston have their work on display at at the North Carolina Arboretum in Asheville, NC.  The show is titled "Nature Across the Carolinas - Fiber Art with Quilts".  
 These very talented ladies share a love of creating art quilts and their work is so cohesive in this venue!  If you can't get to Asheville to check out this exhibit go to Judy's post, which shows some of the quilts on exhibit.  

 Check out some of the other interesting articles in 'Ashville Made'  here.  What a neat magazine!  And congrats again to Judy for such a great article!
