“Windblown” just sold!
That was the subject line of the email I received yesterday. My heart skipped a beat. Inside the email was one simple line:
“Karey Bresenhan purchased it.”
Karey is the founder of the International Quilt Association.
Windblown is currently on tour with a special exhibit for the book, “Art Quilt Portfolio: People and Portraits.” Last week it was on display at the very first venue of the tour, the International Quilt Festival in Houston, Texas. So, I was amazed that it sold so quickly!
I promptly emailed Karey Bresenhan to thank her for purchasing my quilt. In a very short time, she responded by saying, “I love it and am thrilled to have gotten it, Maria! I have always admired your work, and it’s a joy to claim one of your pieces for our corporate collection.”
In a subsequent email, she said that their collecting did not have any “people” quilts, so they were specifically wanting to add one from the special exhibit. I am absolutely thrilled that Karey purchased my quilt. I know it will be well taken care of!
