First Sneak Peek for 2009!

View From My Front Porch
Jan Johnson

The first quilt for 2009 has landed! Just like last year I will post Sneak Peeks of the work as they come in. Once its closer to the exhibit and pieces are coming in on a regular basis, the Sneak Peeks will become a weekly series but as we are just beginning, they will be whenever work comes in.

This beauty is by Jan Johnson and is titled View From My Front Porch. From Jan's artist statement:

"Three seasons of the year I can come home after a day of teaching , put my feet up, and relax on my front porch. Living in the country is a quiet place affording fantastic views of the changing colors of the landscape during the different seasons and lots of wildlife that doesn't hesitate to enjoy my yard in one way or another."

What a wonderful piece to kick off this year's exhibit!

Your "front porch" view is spectacular and your quilt is visually inspiring! Congratulations on being the first of many to be submitted for this exhibit!
