Breaking Traditions Sneak Peek

Breaking Traditions is an open call art quilt exhibit that debuts at The American Sewing Expo in Novi, Michigan in September. This year, the exhibit will travel to other venues during 2009. The theme this year, With One Voice, pays tribute to all the good that people do. We are also proud to team up with Virgina Spiegel's Fiberart for a Cause project to help raise money for the American Cancer Society! You can read all the details for participating in this year's exhibit here.

I'm proud to offer you a Sneak Peek of two of the quilts that will be in the exhibit this year:

Making the Mundane Beautiful
Beth Shibley

Artist statement: This quilt honors foster parents who care for children with understanding, patience and love.

Robin Remembers
Crane Johnson

Artist statement: The familiar song and sighting of the Robin is known all over as the first harbinger of spring. One morning a tree in our back yard filled with over 100 Robins. It was an amazing sight and sound. While I've always appreciated the role of birds in our ecosystem, this was a unique view into their social relationships. With One Voice they sang and with one community they hungrily ate insects off my trees. (photo and haiku by Don Jonhson)

I hope you will consider joining us for this year's exhibit and honoring those that do good in the world while raising money for the American Cancer Society.

Together we can make a huge difference in the world!!!

Every other Monday between today and August 1, one of the art quilts that has been sent in for Breaking Traditions 2008 will be featured here. Stay tuned for more Sneak Peeks!
