The Good With The Bad

Here’s the good news: My “Tree of Life” quilt from Quilt National 2011 was purchased by one of the jurors, Eleanor McCain. It’s great to sell a piece and particularly exciting that the person who judged the competition picked my work to be worthy of her collection.

It reminded me of time in 1984 when Nancy Crow selected me as an “Emerging Quilt Maker” and in the early 90s when I received a juror’s award for this “Auto Quilt” from Tim Harding.

Nu, what could be bad about receiving recognition that validates the work?

Because in an anti-container fashion, it fuels my desire to create more, to find more, to buy more, to seek more, and to do more all in the effort to out do the latest accomplishment and receive more.

Pittsburgh-based fiber artist, Louise Silk, creates art that combines aesthetics and functionality with meaning and memories. From the influence of a 1972 MS Magazine article to the current SILKDENIM label, her quilt experiences culminate in a display of her particular capacity to use her patchwork skills to piece together just about anything into an aesthetic meaningful whole.
