Quilt Shows

In earlier years, I exhibited my work in many juried and non-juried quilt shows across the country, including the American Quilter's Society show in Paducah, KY and the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival in Williamsburg, VA and won many awards. Because the style of my work has changed, I do not enter quilt shows anymore but seek out venues such as fiber-art or multi-media art shows.
