Quilter participates in national touring exhibit

quilting exhibition Nancy Lee Chong of Woodinville was invited by the Association of Pacific Northwest Quilters (APNQ) to create a quilt for a major national touring exhibition.
   The 50 quilts for this exhibition, each 24" by 36", were created on the theme, "The Elements: Earth, Wind, Fire, and Chocolate." (The theme, suggested by an APNQ member, was elaborated on spontaneously to include "chocolate" when the "real" fourth element was temporarily forgotten.)
   Chong's quilt was be part of the month-long grand opening in October, 1996 at a gallery in the greater Seattle area, and then will tour the United States for two years.
   Invitations to exhibit were based on membership in the APNQ and on a geographical representation from among the more than 500 members in Alaska, Alberta, British Columbia, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington, and the Yukon Territory.
   The Association of Pacific Northwest Quilters is a nonprofit association whose purpose is to promote the art of quiltmaking and to encourage and reward quiltmakers in the geographical Pacific Northwest.
