At our last Kitsap Quilters Guild meeting, quilting friend Amy Constant introduced me to her friend and artist, Leigh Knowles. Leigh coordinates art exhibits at North Point Church, on Hostmark Street (opposite the High School) in Poulsbo. She invited me to exhibit my work at the church and a couple of days later came to my house to select suitable quilts. She went away with seven of my quilts and three Mongolian silk pieces. The following week, I visited the church to see the quilts hanging in the large entrance hall and the sanctuary.
As you walk into the entrance hall you see my quilt, Sunset in the Cloisters, and a Mongolian silk piece of blossoms. High above the quilt is Leigh’s beautiful 5 feet by 10 feet painting which she called For the Glory of God painted especially for this spot. The painting looks quite quilt-like to me and I love the colors and all the elements from the sun, heavens, earth, land and oceans. Here’s a closer look.
My large Mongolian Olzii quilt, Tribute to Mongolia, 103″ x 103″, is in a great spot appropriate for the size, to the right in the entrance hall. Then on the left by the fireplace is an easel with the Mongolian silk silver unicorn.
In the sanctuary there are stands on either side adjacent to the large stage. My Midnight Mosaic hangs on one side and a lovely Mongolian silk piece made from 16 fan blocks on the other side. The quilts will be rotated over the next few weeks until the end of July and will also include some from other artists.
