Lacking Gravity by Laura Wasilowski
Frieda and I will have a booth at the International Quilt Festival in Chicago this April. And I’m already dyeing for it!
We’re also teaching there and I’m happy to see that the SAQA exhibit Balancing Act will be on display. Hope to see you there too!
Pretty Planet #11 by Laura Wasilowski
It looks like clear sailing to the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival in Hampton VA this February. I’ll be teaching several classes including Pretty Planet. In this class we make a small round quilt from fused fabrics that celebrates our lovely planet. (One of nine, I’m told.)

You are given some templates, but free cutting and improvisation are part of the class too. You decide on the shapes and story behind your quilt to make an original design. Hope you can join me in this class or any of the other classes I’ll be teaching at the Festival!
It’s true, when ever Frieda and I travel to the International Quilt Festival we meet the best people and birds. So put on your bird and visit us at the Artfabrik/Friestyle booth #1229 in Houston!

I totally forgot to tell you that I won a prize at the International Quilt Festival in Houston for this little quilt, Bird on a Branch #6. It won second place in the Art Miniature category.

Hope you like it. I know I enjoyed making it.
Sure we look fresh and pretty in this photo. But in reality Frieda and I are frantically trying to set up our Artfabrik/Friestyle booth at the International Quilt Festival in Houston today.
And it’s all for you! Please stop in and visit us in Booth #1229 and say “Hi!”.
While I’m out of town teaching at the Pacific International Quilt Festival (PIQF) you get a view of my sewing studio back home. This is the fusing table where all the magic and mess happens. Note the piles of fused fabric scraps against the wall. There’s so much fabric I barely have room to make anything on the table top. Cleverly, the table top is covered with Teflon so I can fuse directly to it when making my art quilts. That is, when you can find the table top.
