Quilts in France!

Right now, as I am contemplating my age, career and life's goals; an opportunity to exhibit my work in France came along. It is such an honor to be one of the artists exhibiting.  Eight of my quilts will be included in:
9400 Villefranche sur Saone
near Lyon - France
April 12-15, 2012

There will be quilts from Europe, but there will be special exhibitions from Japan, Australia and USA.  I will be included in the American portion. Of course I had to send my two brilliant orange quilts for them, they are such attention grabbers.  And by the way, UPS sent my quilts from Racine to France, and it only took two days.

So if you will not be attending this Quilt Expo, you can at least see my 8 quilts, right here, in the comfort of your very own home.  The rest of my quilts included are:
If I could speak French, I would put all this in a different language, for you to peruse. But I can't, so you will have to read this in English!  So, go get yourself a beautiful stemmed crystal glass, and put some French red wine in it, get comfy in your chair and visit all of my quilts online. 

My thanks to Margo Bimler and Monique Bonnet Imbaud for arranging this exhibit!

Toutes mes felicitations!

I am French living in Texas and one of your followers for a while (and also owner of Dancing with Thread). I have never gone to a quilt show in France as the French craziness about quilts started long after I left, but I gather they are quite special. Hope the French public will enjoy your vibrant colorful quilts.

No crystal here, just a glass glass full of tea, but I have always admired "On the Nile"! Congratulations on the exhibition, but I think you should have held out for a free ticket!
