Connie Marie Fahrion's quilt, Tobacco Road, can be seen at International Quilt Festival 2015, in Houston, Tx., October 28 - November 1, 2015. The quilt was inspired by the book Tobacco Road by Erskine Caldwell, although the quilt tells its own open-ended story and bears no resemblance to the actual book.

Jamie Fingal and Leslie Tucker Jenison have juried this invitational exhibit for several years now, via their Dinner at Eight Artists, and it is an honor to be accepted among the talented artists represented there.
