During the course of my busy January (27 quilts in 30 days), I made two pieces I had intended to submit to a show called Turmoil. After they were completed, I started the submission process, only to find <head slap> that my measurements were wrong.

So during February I made two more, of the correct size, and even added a third. And, yes, I got them submitted in time.

I don’t know if I was accepted into the show, but I feel like I accomplished something by taking a deep breath, pulling up my socks, and doing the whole thing over again!

Strange Domesticity, Art Quilt: A herd of target-practice deer have gathered in the lawn, and an innocent goat finds himself in the middle. A strange domesticity takes hold as the women get their guns.

A Troubled Day in the Country, Art Quilt: Usually life in the country is peaceful. Except when it’s not. The children are escaping, the new neighbors don’t look too friendly, mom is having trouble starting the truck, and even the mail service is starting to getting hinky. Oh dear!

Mother Serves the Turkey, Art Quilt: Everything is topsy turvy. Usually when mother “serves turkey” she roasts it and carves it up for others to eat. Today, instead, she serves Mrs. Hen Turkey her favorite food, watermelon. To add to the strangeness, Pony is on strike, and Turtle is pulling Baby in the wagon. In the background there seems to be another war. Which one? It is hard to keep track. Goodness, are they shooting at the artist? She is oblivious.
