Quilt Exhibit in Glass Showcase

                            Kai Houston-Guy, a native Californian, was bitten by the quilting bug almost 15 years ago.  She took up quilting in an effort to quit  smoking and it became an all consuming passion.  Since then she has left traditional quilts behind and taken up the art quilt.

Her current work emphasizes color and form.  She alters commercial fabric that she paints, stamps, or dyes and then cuts into smaller units.  The units are then reassembled into quilts that reflect the current season in her life---a precarious balance on the edge of an almost empty nest, middle age and abstract representations of nature and human form.
