I love to travel all over the globe shopping for textiles to add to my wearable art. I have taught quilting to school children in Nepal, seminole patchwork to seamstresses in Thailand, and jackets and embellishment to quilters in Turkey where I also served as a judge at 2 of their International Quilt Shows. I have created garments for 5 Fairfield and Bernina Fashion Shows and teach classes on embellishment and wearable art. Lately I have been leaning more toward making art quilts.

Project Iron Quilter, Ithaca NY Quilt Show October 3 & 4th, 2009

Project Iron Quilter

With tongues held firmly in cheeks and in anticipation of a fun and entertaining time for all, the
Tompkins County Quilters Guild announces the first "Project Iron Quilter" competition to be held as
part of the Greater Ithaca area Traditions & Beyond 2009 Quilt Show! The competition is a fusion of
two guilty pleasures, Project Runway and Iron Chef. Contestants will have a limited time on Saturday
(in kibitzing view of show attendees!) to create a two or three dimensional wall-hanging based upon a
secret theme revealed at the start of the competition. They will then face a panel of judges who will
discuss the successes, and near misses, of the art works with the contestants. After deliberation, the
judges will announce the winner of the first Project Iron Quilter! Quilt Show attendees will have the
opportunity to vote for their favorite piece in a viewer's choice award.
On Sunday, we'll have an awards ceremony where the Iron Quilter will receive a top of the line
Rowenta iron, and the viewer's choice winner will receive a Rowenta travel iron (to keep with the
Project "Iron" Quilter theme!) Following the ceremony, Quilt Show attendees will have the chance to
take home a Project Iron Quilter wall-hanging if they are the top bidder!
Intrigued? Do you have the mad skills and sense of humor to be a fieeerce contestant? You can apply
to be a contestant in the first Project Iron Quilter competition by submitting three digital images
representative of your work and a brief but persuasive explanation stating why you think you would be
a wonderful contestant for the title, Iron Quilter, to or mail to Ruth
White, 211 Paul's Way, Ithaca, NY 14850. There is a $15.00, non-refundable application fee to help
defray costs. Deadline to receive entries is September 1, 2009. Entries will be numbered to maintain
entrant's anonymity, then given to jurors who will select the contestants. Visit for further
details. Just DO it!

I have thrown my name in the hat -- hope others will do the same. And hope I am picked as a contestant!
