Dear Friends,


I am back from my 4 day cruise and have to get back to work in short order. This Wednesday, May 8th, I will be at The Cultural Arts Center at Glen Allen for a new print release. This print is titled Historic Glen Allen. My show hours at the center are from 2-8 pm, and I will be welcoming collectors and signing prints. I am looking forward to reuniting with my dear friends from the Moss on the James Chapter of the P. Buckley Moss Society. We have such a good time together and they are always so helpful at my show. The address is 2880 Mountain Rd, Glen Allen, Virginia 23060. Will you be there? I hope so.

On the heels of the Glen Allen show, I will be getting in my van for a drive to Gettysburg. King James Galleries of Gettysburg is hosting an Open House on May 10th and 11th. I would like to take a moment and tell you about the history and inspiration for the new print that we will be releasing together. The new print is titled Mary-Penn Spring. This home has the unique distinction of lying on the Mason-Dixon Line. It was built by John McKinley in 1743 and was a single story native field stone home. In 1767 a survey was done by Mason and Dixon which found that 2/3rds of the house was in Pennsylvania with the remaining 1/3rd in Maryland. A second story was added in 1793 using bricks. Historians speculate that the bricks may have come from ship ballasts that were anchored in the Baltimore Harbor. I found it fascinating to hear of how it came to be renovated. 246 acres of farmland, which included the house, were purchased by the Wayland family in 1979. The house was dilapidated and badly in need of repairs. Originally the family had no plans to restore the house and even considered tearing it down. Mary Wayland researched the property and found it historically interesting. She insisted that the house be restored. The restoration was lengthy but they moved into it in 1991. Mary has since passed away and her son is now in possession of the property. In 2008 he opened a B&B in honor of his mother. He says, “You may sleep in Maryland, but breakfast is served in Pennsylvania.” I love that. It is such an honor to have painted this home, especially since Mary-Penn House will be placed on the National Registry of Historic Places on June 1, 2019.


Mary-Penn Spring. $90, IS: 10-5/16 x 10-5/8 ins.


The show times at King James Galleries of Gettysburg are Friday, May 10th, from 5-7 pm and Saturday, May 11th from 10 am until 3 pm. You’ll find me at 15 Baltimore St. in Gettysburg. Here is a link to the gallery web page with contact information as well as how to preorder your print.


I do have a cruise story to share with you. Last year Northcott Fabrics produced a limited run of my images and called the fabric line Amish Life. I was thrilled to arrive on the Ms Oosterdam and have my quilting friends surround me with quilts that they had just completed.  Patricia Krasnozon Allen was the designer of what was introduced as the “mystery quilt.” All of the quilts used my fabric and they were just beautiful! I’d like to thank Pat Tobin for coordinating this massive undertaking and the Quilt Camp at Sea teachers and students for doing this. You have touched my heart.


The extraordinary lineup of Moss quilts! My daughter Mary made one too. She is standing in the center of this picture.
