The “Second Fiber Arts Biennale: Wisconsin State of the Art” opened with a celebration in mid-July at the Wisconsin Museum of Quilts and Fiber Arts (WMQFA). It was a wonderful experience to see the full Peacock Quilt displayed in all of its glory and to intermingle with the other artists and “ooh and ah” over everyone’s fiber art.
I started making this quilt in 2011 and finished in spring of 2015. It is a wedding present for my middle son Adam and his bride Beth. They got married in 2012. Yup, 2012 and I just finished the quilt in 2015. It hasn’t made it to their home yet. Once I finished the quilt it went to straight to WMQFA for this exhibit.
But, the making and displaying of their wedding/peacock quilt will make a great story for their grandchildren someday!
If you are in the Cedarburg, Wisconsin area you should try to make it to this exhibit. Beautiful, creative and inspiring art is on display thru October 18, 2015.
