I added hanging sleeves to these two quilts this week - they'll be in the show.

For anyone in New England, the show is Saturday and Sunday at the UMass Amherst Campus Center. 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. both days.

Day 3 of this art challenge that Jack Edson nominated me for.
The gold, blue, red quilt is a very large sampler quilt that I made when Zach was young. I didn't have the time to do much sewing and it took forever to finish.

The other two quilts I made last year. They're both string quilts. The tops are finished, but these haven't been quilted yet.

This weekend was the Hands All Around Quilt Show 15 in Amherst, MA. This is a show organized every other year by my local quilt guild, of which I'm a member, the Hands Across The Valley Quilt Guild.

This is a selection of some of the quilts that were on display.

Over on that other social media platform, I've been doing this 5 day art challenge - sharing 3 images a day of my art. My art happens to be quilting which I've been doing since 2003.

Here are 3 of my quilts using the technique of Susan Carlson for illustrative quilts.

Story
Introduction
For 16+ years, I've worked in public relations-media relations representing technology, media, and marketing companies. In 2006, I started my own PR consulting business - Jeff Rutherford Media Relations - after working for several New York City PR agencies. 

I stay very busy. I record a podcast - the Reading and Writing podcast - where I interview writers and authors about their books, their writing habits, and authors/books that they enjoy reading. I run an eBook publishing company - Delabarre Publishing

When I'm not working or spending time with my family, one of my hobbies is quilting. I'm a member of QuiltGuy, an online discussion group of male quilters. We have regular quilting retreats, and here's a photo album from our last retreat.

I have a BA in Journalism from the Henry W. Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of Georgia. I worked at newspapers in Georgia, Texas, and Louisiana, and as a literary agent at the Denise Marcil Literary Agency in New York City, before entering the public relations-marketing industry.
 
A native of Macon, Georgia, I now live in Conway, Massachusetts with my wife and two sons.

Mark and his AMC team have been stellar in everything they've done for me. They respond quickly with a knowledgable strategy and and an actionable plan to move forward. I repeatedly refer people to the AMC team because I know what they've done for me over the years. Highly recommended!!

Pioneer Valley CrossFit has been life changing for me, and I don't say that lightly. At 46, I was living a very sedentary life. I've been doing CrossFit at Pioneer Valley CrossFit for 1.5 years now, and I've had nothing but great experiences. I love the intensity of the training, and every single coach I've worked with at Pioneer Valley CrossFit has been great - attentive with a ton of great feedback and suggestions on improvement. I've dropped in at some other CrossFit gyms while traveling. Nothing could compare to the programming and coaching at Pioneer Valley CrossFit. Highly recommended!!

Great beer, good food, great community and family atmosphere. I've lived in Western Mass since 2002, and we eat at The People's Pint at least a couple of times a month and love the food and experience.

Rich at Green River Auto is a great mechanic. I can always depend on on Rich and his team to give me an accurate assessment of whatever repairs my car might need. Honest and dependable. Highly recommended.
