quilt art

My friend Jan and I went to the Winter Quilt Show in downtown OKC on Saturday. We both had shopping limits and we blew them to smithereens (what exactly are smithereens?) But we had a good time shopping at looking at the quilts. We took a mini class on reverse applique and I said I would have one done by tomorrow...oops. Oh the day isn't over yet.

A woman in our quilt guild was the featured artist. Her name is Lola Jenkins and she made the quilt pictured above. She makes a lot of super portrait quilts and she cranks out an amazing seven quilts a month!! I was drawn to this quilt. I love the color's and it's just different.
