star treatment

As a novice quiltmaker, I was pleasantly surprised when my quilt "Center Star" was juried into MANifestations, the twelfth biennial juried exhibition of quilts made by men at the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum.

I was even more surprised when the invitations arrived, and my quilt was one of two featured on the card. The surprises continued this week, when my quilt turned up again on the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum home page and current exhibition page.

Talk about star treatment. Thank you, Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum! Exhibition opens today. If you're in the Denver/Golden area, go see it!! For more details, click here.


  1. It's a fabulous quilt - and the simplicity showcases well. It makes a GREAT cover!

  2. Very cool, Bill! Congratulations!! The quilting on Center Star is terrific! What can you tell us about it?

    1. Tomme Fent did the quilting, and exactly to my specifications. Fortunately, we were allowed to use any long-arm quilter we wanted. I thought up the idea of using quilting to define the motif and separate it from the background, and it was just what I had pictured, beautifully done! :)

  3. I don't think anyone else is remotely surprised that your quilt is so featured. It is absolutely beautiful! Congrats. Sounds like a great exhibition...
