Announcing ‘Going Places’ Reader Challenge finalists

In the October/November issue, we challenged readers to create an art quilt based on the theme “Going Places,” in whatever way that translated to them. When we created the challenge, we were thinking ahead to spring and all of the transformations that take place. Our creative and clever readers did, indeed, take this challenge to heart and we’re happy to announce the finalists:

Peggy French, “Cardiff Sunset”
Kathy Harris, “Up Up and Away”
Katherine Dossman, “Positlano”
Jacque Defenbaugh, “Going Shopping”
Margaret Pottinger, “Allegory”
Ann Brauer, Untitled
Linda Nelson-Johnson, “Signs of Spring”
Tracie Horne, “Emergence”
Pamela Roberts, “Any Way the Wind Blows”
Louise LoPinto Hutchison, “Going Places”
C. Ann Robertson, “House in the Woods”

Congratulations, finalists, and thank you to all who submitted their work for this challenge!
