A New York State Of Mind

I'm both honoured and humbled to learn that my Tropical Farrago has been chosen as a finalist in the New York State of Mind quilt competition. Sponsored by the New York Historical Society, this exhibition is made up of quilts from traditional blocks...such as the New York Beauty. A New York State of Mind will be held at the Fenimore Art Museum/Farmer's Museum in Cooperstown, N.Y. October 15-17, 2010. Most think of the Baseball Hall of Fame when they hear Cooperstown, but as a former English teacher I am reminded of the name James Fenimore Cooper, whose father founded this town. You may recall Natty Bumpo in The Leatherstocking Tales, or The Last of The Mohicans. Murphy's Law being in full effect, I am presenting workshops at our Fibre Arts Festival that week and unable to attend the show. :( If any readers in the area are planning to go, I'd be very grateful for some pictures. It will be a fabulous show.


  1. Congratulations! That is awesome! It is such a gorgeous quilt. A sure winner!

  2. Oh! Congratulations Karen! Sorry you can't make it to NY, but selfish enough to be glad you will be passing on your skills to me:)

  3. well, the photo of that quilt was the very reason that I purchased your pattern and have the project at the top of my to-do list. The honour given you in further reason to get started on the piecing. Congratulations!
