Risk-taking, trust, and serendipity

are key ingredients of joy.

Without risk,

nothing new ever happens.

Without trust, fear creeps in.

Without serendipity,

there are no surprises.

-- Rita Golden Gelman

Grandma Maude

Grandma Maude is now showing at Quilt National at the Dairy Barn in Athens, Ohio. She will travel for the next two years to various venues in the United States.  It was a thrill to have my quilt chosen for this very prestigious art quilt exhibit and to attend the opening in May.
