La Conner Quilt & Textile Museum 2012 Thom Atkins and Susan Stanton

This is a 'must see' show!
La Conner Quilt & Textile Museum:
It is wise to check for days open and times.
Thom is an artist who has worked in Bronze in the past, took up beading more recently ... and  uses quilts as his 'backdrop'!
His quilts are beautiful in themselves and
the beading adds an integrated  design element.
Some of his work is pure fun ... 'Even Frogs Dream'
A little detail - note butterfly is completely beaded.
Much of the work is for sale, including these beautiful journal quilts. See more at

Susanne in front of two of her 'cats' - they are painted, the expressions are very well done!
Susanne's vests are very well designed and beautifully hand stitched.

The show that just finished is the 'Together show' and can be seen with photos and artist statements:
