Norma Schlager Wins 3rd Place at World of Beauty, 2013 Int'l Quilt Festival (Houston, TX)

SchlagerPlanet

International Quilt Festival, Houston TX
Oct 31 – Nov 3, 2013

Congratulations to SAQA artists Norma Schlager of Connecticut and Kathleen Loomis of Kentucky, who created the prize winning quilt "Brown Planet a Collaboration".

Loomis started "Brown Planet" in 2005, but she hit a creative wall and never quite resolved it.  In 2011, she sent the fabric pieces to Norma Schlager.  Norma picked up where Kathy left off, and brought the work to its beautiful finished form (see image, above).

Brown Planet a Collaboration won 3rd Place in the category ART: Abstract Large, sponsored by Hoffman California/ International Fabrics.  Schlager was there to accept the award in person.
