The zebra I made for a group quilt that was displayed at IQF Long Beach the very first year. Of course the exhibit was organized by Jamie Fingal and was titled "Everything Under the Sun."
|Cindy Cooksey made the bunny, Stacy Hurt made the carousel horse, Vickie Valdez-Green made the lion and Terry Waldron made the giraffe. It was inspired by the old carousel in Long Beach. The quilt is 5' x 5'|
Also for "Everything Under the Sun" many artists submitted fabric postcards with a Long Beach theme and we put them together and made a large quilt to place at the entrance of the exhibit. These are the postcards I made. My dad was born in Long Beach, so I used an old photo of him for one postcard.

|We had to have a Long Beach Airport postcard on the quilt also.|
|It really was an impressive quilt. The postcards were so interesting and beautiful.|
