"Time Lapse Moon Rise" part of the "Fly Me to the Moon" exhibit in Indianapolis and Book Publication

"Time Lapse Moon Rise," 18" x 30", made by Pam Geisel, 2015

Two years ago I made the art quilt "Time Lapse Moon Rise" for the Fly Me to the Moon art quilts to honor the 50th Anniversary of man walking on the moon. The quilts, which will tour tour the country at different events through 2019, are finally going to be close enough for me to see them all together at the Indianapolis Guild Show at Westfield Middle School on October 20 and 21. You can view all of the quilts, or get more information here.

The book is also being published this month and it can be purchased from Schiffer Publishing or Amazon.

Professionally printed note cards of this quilt are available at Village Artisans and on-line in my Etsy shop.

New Hawaiian Themed Wine Glass Coasters and Bookmarks

We recently took a trip to Hawaii and had a great time. Of course I couldn't come home without some new fabric. I used some of that fabric to make some bookmarks...

...and some wine glass coasters. I'll have them at Art on the Lawn this Saturday, Aug. 12, 2017. After the show I'll take them to Village Artisans. And you can also get them from my Etsy shop.
