Expressing our successes through ARTAAfacts

ARTAA members meet twice a month to share their latest projects, discuss the next group effort, relate a personal success and to recharge their batteries together. One of the best motivators for any group of artists is the success of one of its own and how expressing that joy is often contagious. Therefore, "ARTAAfacts" will be a frequent feature of our postings, permitting us a bit of group pride in the artistic accomplishments of our members.

Above, as Karen describes her quilt and process for the Road Kill project, others got a laugh at her found objects and title.

ARTAAfacts this month recognizes Nancy DiDonato for her article in the February/March 2010 issue of Quilters Newsletter magazine. "Pin Woven Fabric" was the easy lesson for that issue. Three of Nancy's quilts are shown in the magazine: "Lake View", "Fish in Space", and "Click II".

ARTAAfacts also recognizes Diane Evans for her 2nd place win - Wall Quilts, Innovative category - at the 2009 AQS Des Moines show. Diane's quilt, "Pieces of Dreams" is shown with other winners, including gracing the table of contents page, in the March 2010 issue of AQS American Quilter.
