Catherine Smith Requesting Your Help – Looking for Amy Butler Fabrics

SAQA-CT artist Catherine Whall Smith is asking for your help as she pursues her goal of continuing her “Yellow Series”.  An excerpt from Catherine’s blog:CWSmith_Yellow1LymeDisease

I still have some of the original fabrics – but I am in search of the Amy Butler – yellow/full moon polka dot fabric – yellow dot with a grey background.  I’ve emailed and searched on line, but I don’t seem to be able to find it.

SO IF YOU HAVE A PIECE IN YOUR STASH – please notify me – smith.catherine62@gmail.com ASAP -

who knows YELLOW #?-could be named after you.

May HEALTH and HAPPINESS follow you throughout 2011.  . . . CW Smith

The image you see here is Catherine Whall Smith’s “Yellow #1: Lyme Disease”, the first in her yellow/red series. She methodically hand quilts each piece, stitching in straight lines with such consistency that she can calculate the number of stitches based on the dimensions of the piece.   For example, “Yellow #1” contains 68,000 stitches.
