Young Forest #5 was created for the SAQASeasonal Palette juried exhibit opening at the International Quilt Festival in Houston this November. This giant of a quilt measures about 32" w x 78" h. (And since I have Tyrannosaurus Rex arms, it wasn't easy to create.)

One of the requirements, after acceptance in this exhibit, was to document
the process of creating the work including inspiration, design concerns,
and techniques in a journal. Over the next few weeks (while I'm off gallivanting in Houston and California) I'd like to show you my process for making Young Forest #5. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll wonder why.
