"Rituals" Makes A Splash On The Cover of Quilting Arts Magazine!

The next time you see Judy Coates Perez you might be tempted to ask for an autograph:  Her quilt, "8 of Cups", is featured on the cover of the October/November issue of Quilting Arts magazine!

In addition, there is a 7-page (that's right:  SEVEN!) article about the exhibition that showcases an editor-selected array of quilts:  "I See the Moon", by Susan Brubaker Knapp (a previous "cover girl"),
"Milo", by Jeannie Palmer Moore, "Lost Rituals:  Grief", by Susie Monday, "Cosmic Gears", by Loris Bogue, "Sunrise Serenade", by Barb Forrister, "Walking with Mr. C and Scooter", by Gerrie Congdon, "Meditation", by Karen Rips, and "Boundary Waters 60 (Rock Time)", by Virginia Spiegel.

Congratulations to all of the artists whose work is in the "Rituals" exhibition!  This magazine elevates the visibility of your work, and will generate even more "buzz", and just in time for the International Quilt Festival in Houston!  Jamie and I are so grateful for each of you.  Thank you for entrusting us with your wonderful work.  

In addition, the magazine includes a 2-page "Curator Q&A" of Jamie and Leslie, the d@8 curators. 
We share a bit about the history of Dinner At Eight and some of the details about how we work together.  The article includes a link to the d@8 blog.  
Here it is (or at least 1.3 pages of it!) sitting in front of my laptop screen!
Appropriately enough, our photo was taken at one of our 
dinners (at 8:00, natch!) in Houston.
