Celebrating Collage Making!

My friend Jenny has graciously lent me this photo of her quilt created in my Color Chip Collage class at Quilt University in Ann Arbor a while back.  In class you make several versions of fused collages like strip fusing (above), bias fusing, patterning, and even weaving. Then use the collages to create your own design of a still life, landscape, portrait, or abstract construction. I never know what students will come up with; my favorite kind of class. Thanks for sharing your work with us Jenny!

Irish Patchwork Society Visit

Soon you will find me in the lovely land of Ireland (see above)! I’m so happy to report I’ll be visiting with members of the Irish Patchwork Society for their show, Q is for Quilt, in Cork. Check out this blog at The Woolly Way of Ireland for more information.
The exhibition of quilts takes place at the Cork Institute of Technology in Bishopstown, Cork.  The opening is on Saturday the 4th September at 5:00 and the exhibition will run for one week. I’ll be giving a talk (Art Quilts: the Musical) on Saturday afternoon (at 3:00) followed by the official opening. You’ll find me teaching the lovely Irish quilters on Sunday and Monday. Wish me luck!

Round the Quilting World

Round the Quilting World

Look what my friend Denise made! She saw my recent Quilting Arts article about my round Pretty Planet quilts and decided to give it a go. She did a great job making her own version along with hand stitching and beautiful color choices.

And here’s her quilt with the first page of the article. Its always fun to see what people are making. Thanks for sharing your work with us Denise!

My friend Barbara from British Columbia also made a Pretty Planet quilt. This is her version depicting all that is great about the Pacific Northwest. I love the addition of 3-D elements. Yikes! Is that a bear?  Thank you Barbara!
