2010 International Festival - 2nd Place

In some competitive circles, 2nd place might be a disappointment... but not at IQA-Houston, easily recognized as the prominent International Competition for contemporary quilters creating both art and traditional work. This competition category is sponsored by Ricky Tims. "Thank you", Mr. Tims! IQA further honored this piece with a full page photo in the annual festival magazine called "QUILT SCENE!" (available at festival and magazine counters)

Patt's newest art piece: "In Quito's Market" features a young Ecuadorian child in the dirt plaza market in the country's capital. There, some children play surrounded by filth and thievery as their parents work to support their children. Little Maria had 2 toys... an empty box and a twisted piece of paper.
