Lexi B. Shows her Fly Me to the Moon Entry

Lexi's prize winning art quilt  traveled in exhibits for 3 years, and as far away as England,  in the "Personal Memories" category of the Fly Me to the Moon art quilt collection. 

The  collection included art quilts that: commemorate the iconic images from the news; recall personal memories of July 20, 1969; honor all the Apollo Missions; recognize all of the Apollo Astronauts; investigate scientific moon images; examine NASA’s cool tools; explain myths associated with the moon; define moon idioms; replay the music inspired by the moon; visit pop culture icons; and make us fall in love again under the romantic moon.

March 9 Show and Tell

Artists from eight countries submitted art quilts to be juried by Lisa Ellis, president of Studio Art Quilt Associates (SAQA), and Cyndi Souder. Although the quilts are varied in style, the theme is always the same, the moon. The 179 art quilts tell the story of our fascination with the moon since the dawn of time through the Apollo moon walks and beyond. Well-known and new fibre artists have stretched their creative muscles to draw the viewer in to the world of science, romance, history and fantasy. This exhibit has something for everyone. The book about the collection, Fly Me to the Moon: An Art Quilt Journey, was written by curator Susanne Jones. Click HERE to visit the complete Fly Me to the Moon exhibit.
