Strength and Calm
The 2012 "Rituals" exhibit, a juried invitational, was curated by Leslie Tucker Jenison and Jamie Fingal. The theme this year encompassed any ritual, from the sacred to the ordinary. In late 2011 I finally began, yet again, an excercise program, but this time I fell in love with it. This class combines some yoga positions, Pilates and other exercises to develop core strength, flexibility, and I’m sure there is something else. One day while working on a “mermaid” pose, I was watching a classmate thinking how beautiful the shapes of her body are while doing these stretches and the idea for a “yoga” quilt was born. You can read about the quilt and its evolution here and here and here.
As in 2011, this exhibit debuted at the International Quilt Festival, Long Beach (thank you to our sponsors!) and continued to IQF Houston. To read more about the Rituals exhibit, visit Jamie and Leslie's blog, here.
