500 Art Quilts - Doing the Happy Jig

500 Art Quilts is coming out in March 2010. The cover features this wonderful piece by Nancy Murty called Love, Honor and Cherish.

Doing the happy jig tonight. Just got word that 2 of my entries to the book, 500 Art Quilts, were selected to be published. Here is a peek at details of the pieces. You can see the full size pieces on my website.

Wow. With all the great art quilts out there, I feel really honored and humble to be included.
Keep Quilting

  2. Congratulations Nancy! Your work is stunning. I can't wait to see the book.

  3. I have been to your website and your work is fabulous! Congratulations! I'm not the least bit surprised that you got accepted.

  4. Thanks all. So great to get notes from you. I was out with church colleagues last night and did not think to mention it. But knew that kindred spirits would appreciate how much a thrill it is.

  5. What great news Nancy! Congratulations indeed.

  6. Grace, thanks for the note. Loved seeing your work at the Lake Norman Quilt Show on Friday. Nancy
