Susanne Miller JonesFor quilt artist Susanne Miller Jones, the anniversary of this historic milestone seemed a perfect occasion to celebrate in the form of a quilt exhibit. So, last year, Jones put out a call to other fiber artists seeking quilts that honor the space program, the Apollo missions, and space exploration. The resulting exhibit features an impressive range of quilts from artists in eight different countries.
The exhibit will travel through 2019. It will premiere at Quilt Festival in Houston this year. Next year, it will be at many of the other major quilt shows. In 2018, it will travel internationally. In 2019, it is my plan for it to be in museums, galleries, and facilities that honor the space program. The exhibit schedule is available at my website HERE.
