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, N.Y. Oct 3 & 4th 2009

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

With tongues held firmly in cheeks and in anticipation of a fun and entertaining time for all, theTompkins 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 theopportunity 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:
