Giveaway :: 2019 Curated Quilts Calendar

2019 Curated Quilts Calendar (3).JPG

Oh happy day! I am so pleased to have my quilt, Las Ventanas, in the new 2019 Curated Quilts calendar. This lovely calendar is printed on the same matte finish paper as the CQ magazine and is constructed in such a way that the quilt photos can later be cut out and framed if desired. See more calendar quilts or purchase one here: Curated Quilts Magazine.

My copies have finally arrived and I’d like to giveaway two of them to two lucky winners. If you would like to be in on the giveaway, please comment once below and tell me what is your favorite item in either of my shops. The giveaway is open to US destinations only. Feel free to let your friends know about the giveaway. Comments close on Thursday at 5 pm (Pacific time). I will be choosing two names from the hat on Thursday night so I can ship on Friday. I will be going on vacation next week, so final shop orders will also go out on Friday. Thanks and good luck!

**** Please note, I have no way to contact you directly from Squarespace. If you enter the contest, please put your email address in the comments separated by spaces (ie- name @ gmail.com). OR, if you prefer to keep your email private, be on the look out for a blog post Thursday evening. If I don’t hear from the winners by 8 pm Thursday I’ll have to choose other names. Thanks!

Just popping in for a quick post to let you know I've had some happy news tonight.  Tranquility has won an Honorable Mention in the Modern quilts category at AQS Grand Rapids.  I won't be able to attend the show, but it starts tomorrow if you are in the area.

In other news, Wild Abandon has ended its show days and will be heading to its new home tomorrow.  I have added new items to the shop in recent days.  Check out quilts, textile art and original paintings here:  KristinShieldsArt.  For handmade art journals look here:  KMSHandmade.

The Creativity Project

Have you heard of The Creativity Project by Kim Soper of Leland Ave Studios?  Kim is doing a year long series of weekly conversations with quilters.  There are so many wonderful quilters in this series and we are only half way through the year.  Last month I was honored to be asked to be included and thrilled to be in such great company!  My interview published today and I hope you'll check it out.

Quilt Week in Central Oregon

 SOQS 2017

SOQS 2017

Are you ready for Quilt Week?  This is the biggest week of the year for quilters in Central Oregon and for thousands of visitors from all around the world leading up to the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show on Saturday July 14.  Activities happen all week, starting with the Quilt Walk Kickoff tomorrow, Sunday July 8; through a week of classes, lectures and events; and even past the show itself to Quilt Show Sunday on July 15.  It's sure to be a fun week.  I will be in Sisters for the show on Saturday and on Thursday to go to some artist receptions and meet friends.  It should be lots of fun!  Here's a link to the Show Guide.

I will have 7 quilts in the show this year, including several for sale.  I have quilts in the Storybook special exhibit, the Central Oregon SAQA special exhibit, and the Mt Bachelor Quilters' Guild special exhibit "Periodic Table of the Elements".  There are also 4 in the general show that are for sale.  If you see something that you like here I suggest you contact the show directly as they already have my quilts.
