With Summer over, it's time for the yellow, orange, and red leaves of Fall. But what does Fall look like halfway across the world. In Autumn in Sankyoson, Kyoko Oura depicts a scene that can be viewed from her room in Nanto, Toyama, Japan, rice plants and dragonflies dancing in a peaceful autumn wind.

Autumn in Sankyoson by Kyoko Oura of Nanto, Toyama, Japan was featured in the Pictorial category at Houston 2019.

Over the course of six months, we have covered a wide range of subjects in The Art of Quilt Design program. As we come to a close, we hope have you have found these lessons helpful as they pertain to your own work. We would very much like to thank all the artists and especially the TQS family of artists who so generously shared their knowledge and quilt images with us. Without them, this program would not have offered the same depth of understanding or value. We are tremendously grateful.

One is never too old to learn. You have dipped your toe in the water when it comes to understanding design. Think of learning as a journey (hopefully, on the correct side of the road), with continued study always a good idea. Classes, online courses, and books abound to help you continue growing as a quilt artist. Below are a number of resources we believe would be a good place to continue your education:

When Vicki Anderson of Machine Quilting Unlimited  magazine  asked for whole cloth quilts, Teri Lucas answered the call. The idea for her quilt, @Play, was inspired by a conversation with a friend who told her that she should make a "spiral" quilt. Little did Teri know, her spiral ended up going on what she calls a "wacko journey".

You can learn from Teri in Show 2707.

Beginning today, TQS will now be featuring quilts exhibited in 2020 at QuiltCon as part of The Quilts of Victoria Findlay Wolfe exhibit. The exhibit is described as:

"Purposeful play is a deliberate free-form practice with one goal in mind: to ultimately improve the outcome of the finished product while capturing a thought, emotion, or technique. Always fascinated by color, pattern, and quilters who came before us, Victoria Findlay Wolfe found her life's true joy in exploring her grandmother's quiltmaking as a starting point.

Her diverse and exciting body of work stirs quilters worldwide to dig deeper, take risks, and experiment with fabric. This retrospective exhibit features a selection of Findlay Wolfe's inspiring quilts and the stories behind them."

Please enjoy Victoria's first quilt from the exhibition.
