Olivers travels...

Oliver is flying once again!  Sometimes I think this boy has traveled more than me!

A while back I received an email requesting Oliver to be part of the 2017 invitation-only special exhibit at the Brigham City Museum of Art and History.  Wow!  Umm, yes...

The exhibit runs June 16 through August 31, 2017.  The museum is located at 24 North 300 West in Brigham City, Utah, and I am honored to be included in this amazing list of artists:

Presenting quilts by Christine Alexiou, Canada; Beatrice Bueche, France; Sue Bleiweiss, Massachusetts; Melani Kane Brewer, Florida; Anne H. Datko, Utah; Jennifer Day, New Mexico; Karen Eckmeier, Connecticut; Aileyn Renli Ecob, California; Kaye Evans, Utah; Laura Fogg, California; Robin Gausebeck, Illinois; Mariko Hayashi, Japan; Margarete Heinisch, California; Ann Horton, California; Jean Renli Jurgenson, California; Sandra Leichner, Oregon; Shani Leser, Israel; Karen Marchetti, Florida; Suzanne Marshall, Missouri; Lea McComas, Colorado; Jeannie P. Moore, California; Patti Morris, Canada; Bethanne G. Nemesh, Pennsylvania; Do Palma, Wyoming; Ruth Powers, Kansas; Jan Reed, California; Jane Sassaman, Illinois; Gillian Shearer, Australia; Zena Thorpe, California; Laura Welklin, Indiana; Cathy Wiggins, North Carolina; and Allison Wilbur, Rhode Island.

If you're a new follower you might not know about Oliver.  He is one of my favorite quilts. He was the result of a week long retreat with the amazingly talented Sharon Schamber.  Like I've said a million times before if you ever get the chance to take a class with her do so - you will not regret it!
While Oliver is retired from competition, he's had quite the journey so far - here are just a few highlights -

So... if you just happen to be in Utah over the summer, swing by the museum, check out the exhibit, and maybe send me a picture or two of Oliver hanging!
