the quilts of Ann Brauer--February news

As I sit typing this letter, we are just starting to get the snow storm that is sweeping across the country. Did I tell you that I am already tired of snow? Yes, I know it is beautiful--I have had some great snow shoes through the woods--so magical. I have watched the moonlight twinkle on the snow--now that is truly gorgeous. But right now I am getting a bit tired of it.  There are only 46 days, 10 hours and 28 minutes but who's counting.

When I can get in to the studio I am busy preparing for the Baltimore Craft Show February 24-27. I love this show. It is the largest quality indoor craft show in the country. There is so much to see here--long rows of artists--some with very practical work and some whose imagination and skill will stun you. To get more information and purchase advance tickets you can go to http://www.eventbrite.com/event/1046115961?ref=ebtn1 . My booth is 1122. I have just finished a wonderful new large quilt--I can't wait until I can get an image taken of it to show you--though you can read about it on my blog: http://www.annbrauer.blogspot.com

Meanwhile my quilt daybreak is in the No Holds Barred Show at the New England Quilt Museum in Lowell, MA. It is lovely show with work from the Studio Art Quilt Association members throughout the New England region. For further information you can go to: http://www.nequiltmuseum.org And my quilt rivers of autumn is showing at the National Quilt Museum in Paducah, KY--http://www.quiltmuseum.org.

And when I am not snow bound, you can usually find me working in my studio--though call first just to check on it.

Here is a picture of my quilt: colors of my garden to warm you up on this wintery day.

What do you think? How much snow have you had?


  1. Ann, you have me feeling very spoiled for living in Southern California all my life where we tend to think it's cold if it gets down into the 40's. Your quilt is a feast for the eyes though, no matter where one lives. Sending well wishes your way for the Baltimore Craft Show :-)

  2. Love this quilt, Ann! Resembles my newest painting of a sunset. We are bracing ourselves for the big snowfall expected tonight and tomorrow. Thankfully, we're not supposed to get the ice. Good luck with the show!

  3. Thanks Valerie--I will definitely take your best wishes and could send you some snow if you would like .

    Patrice--Thanks. I do love your sunsets. You must have a great view from where you live.
