Gilbert & Sullivan's The Mikado
To celebrate their 60 year, the Society is raffling a tee shirt quilt
We saw The Mikado over the weekend. What a delight! It is Seattle's Gilbert & Sullivan Society 60th year. Take a trip to Japan as they present The Mikado or "The Town of Titipu." This Gilbert & Sullivan opera is a masterful screwball comedy overflowing with song, dance and hilarity, and contains all the classic elements required for a superior Gilbert & Sullivan operetta; a member of the upper class pretending to be of the lower class, forbidden love, villains, giggling maidens, romance and a happy ending.
My quilts are colorful, graphic, vibrant and joyful!! I use color and texture to explore the glories of nature. Realism or abstraction, are used as best fits a theme or concept. I enjoy the challenge and excitement of translating my vision into quilts through a rich variety of fabrics, gilding and embellishment.
I find such joy in being able to express myself through quilting, that I'm not comfortable without a needle in my hand. Quilting is my life's work and a wonderful one at that.
The best quilt is always the next one.
