Rob at Olde City Quilts in Burlington NJ was nice enough to put this photo me with my recently completed Water Lily Art Quilt. The quilting was done at the shop on the long arm quilting machine known as ‘Miss Kitty’. Check out the Olde City Quilts Facebook link to the photo.

I justed started working on a new kit. When sewn together the size will be a 42″ x 62″ the image of the Teepee. The kit will consist of (36) 100% cotton sheets or “blocks”. The sheets will have ‘matchlines’ provided for easy and accurate sewing of the fabric image ‘top’.
It’s amazing how fast time flies, it’s been a few years since I took this photo while visiting the Hualapai Indian Nation in Arizona the week the Sky walk open to the public. They had erected this teepee next the entrance of the Skywalk. I love this photo because of the beautiful blue sky and the shadowing that was occurring on the skin of the structure at the time that I took this photo. This image has a very calming effect while still being bold in the colors contrast.
I hope you like what what you see and would like to make a quilt or wall hanging from the kit. I’m introducing the kit at $190.00 and it will be available on my on-line store at Etsy.com shortly. But if you would like to purchase it now, direct from me, contact me by email: email@example.com and your price will be $152.00. Thank you for your interest.

About the location:
In 1984, J. Seward Johnson, sculptor and philanthropist and a grandson of Robert Wood Johnson I (co-founder of Johnson & Johnson) envisioned a public sculpture garden and museum in Hamilton, NJ. His desire was to make contemporary sculpture as an art form more accessible and to offer people from all backgrounds the opportunity to become comfortable with contemporary art. Grounds For Sculpture was conceived as a place where audiences could experience sculpture in a familiar, accessible, and informal setting.
The sculpture park began in 1989 on the site of the former New Jersey State Fairgrounds and the Grounds For Sculpture opened to the general public in 1992. Since its inception, the park has built a collection of over 240 works, including sculptures by renowned artists Clement Meadmore, Anthony Caro, Beverly Pepper, Kiki Smith, and New Jersey sculptor George Segal.
