Another preview!

I am in full on photo mode with the quilts so thought I would post another preview!


Still I Rise
Cathy Ortelle

Artist statement: Maya Angelou has a very distinctive voice. I immediately recognize it. More importantly, her words speak volumes and help guide the reader to become a better person and recognize the injustices in this world. If we could all speak "with one voice" the world might be a better place.

NEW Sneak Peek!

Here is another sneak peek of a beautiful art quilt sent in for the exhibit. This one is from Carol Ann Waugh and honors Project Angel Heart.

Thanks Carol!

Project Angel Heart
Carol Ann Waugh

Artist statement: Project Angel Heart promotes the health, dignity and self-sufficiency of people living with HIV/AIDS, cancer and other life-threatening illnesses by providing nutritous, home-delivered meals with care and compassion.

I was a volunteer driver to deliver these meals for about a year and as I rang the bell to deliver the meals, I will never forget the look of hope and gratitude on the faces of the people who received the food. Project Angel Heart relies on many volunteers to cook and deliver meals. In 2006, 4,000 volunteers prepared, packaged, and delivered 318,627 meals to 1,392 clients. Together, these people combine into one voice to truly make a tangible difference in people's lives every day.

Previous Sneak Peeks

This post collects all of the Sneak Peek posts from my personal blog so far for the 2008 exhibit.


Do Small Things with Great Love
Linda Boone Laird

Good deeds don't have to be great deeds to be worthwhile. All of us have the chance to do the small things of our daily lives with indifference, or with love.

A Mother's Voice
Jeanelle McCall

Artist statement: 'One Voice' who enriches our lives is the voice of a mother. Her influence is fundamental in shaping all that touches us and all that we do. Passion, strength and wisdom are her beauty.

This piece has several layers of various fabrics and stitching honoring the many depths of motherhood that may go unnoticed unless one pays close attention.

This little quilt is a portrait of my mother, Sarah Belle.

We're Not Just Women, We are Moms
Jackie Lams

Artist statement: Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS) exists to encourage, equip and develop every mother of preschoolers to realize her potential as a woman, mother and leader I have been a part of my MOPS group since 2004. They have touched my life, given me everlasting friendships, unconditional love and support and made me a better person.

Robin Remembers
Crane Johnson

Artist statement: The familiar song and sighting of the Robin is known all over as the first harbinger of spring. One morning a tree in our back yard filled with over 100 Robins. It was an amazing sight and sound. While I've always appreciated the role of birds in our ecosystem, this was a unique view into their social relationships. With One Voice they sang and with one community they hungrily ate insects off my trees. (photo and haiku by Don Jonhson)

Making the Mundane Beautiful
Beth Shibley

Artist statement: This quilt honors foster parents who care for children with understanding, patience and love.

Safe Haven
Judi Corrado

Artist statement: Safe Haven honors the volunteers and community agencies that provide refuge for women and children of domestic violence. It is important to provide an alternative to these families.

Blue Dog with Red Bone
Paula Page

Artist Statement: My tribute to our four legged friends who give us unconditional love, loyalty and companionship; to the service dogs who improve the life of those they assist and to all the shelter workers who volunteer their time to better the lives of homeless animals.
