Sister Joan

Sister Joan by Jackie Jackson-Harvey

Jackie Jackson-Harvey created Sister Joan as a tribute to her sister Joan who is battling kidney cancer. Quilt artist Lola Jenkins  designed the portrait.  Jackie set the portrait into a panel with one of Joan’s favorite poems Footprints in the Sand to create the 40 x 50 inch quilt.

Sister Joan was recently part of the 2011 Atlanta Quilt Festival held at the South Fulton Arts Center, 4645 Butner Road, College Park, GA. The 2012 Atlanta Quilt Festival opens July 29th.

There are only three days left to see the quilts in the Atlanta Quilt Festival exhibit. In addition to the juried quilt exhibit, several guest quilt artists have quilts in the exhibit. One of them is Lola Jenkins.

Ms. Jenkins is an exception quilt artist best know for her portraits. She was recently the featured speaker at the Brown Sugar Stitchers Annual Tea. While in town she left BB King (shown above) behind to share with Atlanta’s quilt-loving public.

If you want to see this quilt in person, visit the exhibit at the South Fulton Arts Center, 4645 Butner Road, College Park, GA. The exhibit closes at 4 p.m.
