Uta in the spotlight - SAQA Journal Vol 28 no 1

I was eating my breakfast this morning and reading my new SAQA journal that had just arrived in the mail and there was an article about Uta and her work on p. 29. No time now to include a photo as I am running out the door. Uta, maybe you can tell us more about it and share a link! Congratulations! Great article and beautiful quilt....

Results in exhibition

Last week I spent four long and interesting days at the Biennale International d'Art Textile in France, presenting a small show of my series 'text messages'. As two of the pieces I have made for the challenges in this group belong in this series, they, too, were included in the exhibition. And they made a very nice pair:

below: text messages 15
Thank you to the group for the inspirations for these pieces. I am looking forward to working on other challenges when the art symposium is over in May and I can think of other things again.

Here is a view of some more of the exhibition:

Dear Bloggers ,

The day of the blog exhibition with my Auckland Quiltmakers group is fast approaching (5th and 6th May). I have compiled notes on each artist which have so far  been chosen by members and then gathered all our interpretations from our postings on the blog. I have carefully labelled everyones piece of work with first names and decided that the format will look like the enclosed photo. The first part is about the artist and I have shown samples of works. The second part shows everyones labelled  piece of work and the third part is my completed quilt.   Each artist and our interpretations will have a similar format .

 If any of you are unhappy about having your work shown in this way please let me know ASAP and I can delete you from the information sheets.

I think it could be a very interesting exhibition and I hope will be enjoyed by everyone who sees it. I am very excited by it all . When the exhibition is up and running I will send you further pictures.
Please email me at if you wish to contact me directly.

(The second picture is a close up of the information sheets .)

Cheers .
