Today I’m teaching a unsuspecting group of quilt makers how to make a small art quilt like this. They are my guinea pigs, if you will, as this is the first time I’ve taught this class, Woven Flower Basket Quilts. By the time I teach it at the Quilter’s Affair in Sisters OR I should have it down. Care to join me there and find out?
Are you attending the International Quilt Festival Chicago? Sadly, I’m not. But my fabric and thread are!
I’m off to teach at the QuiltFest Savannah this week and will miss the Chicago show. But my friend, Frieda Anderson, will be there with our hand dyed fabrics and threads so you can visit with her. The show runs March 26 – 28. Hope you can attend!
Today is the day for massive organization! In the next month you’ll find these stacks of fabrics in the Artfabrik booth at the International Quilt Festival in Chicago and the AQS Show in Paducah, KY. Plus I’m off to QuiltFest Savannah to teach this week and hop on a cruise ship around New Zealand soon after. I better be organized!
It’s winter here in the Northern Hemisphere and I’m missing my garden. That must be why we make flower garden quilts, to remind us of the color and warmth and sunniness found during the summer months. Today I’m teaching Garden of Eden at the AQS show in Albuquerque. It may be cold and miserable in my hemisphere but here in the classroom it will be sunny and warm. Can’t wait to see what my students make!
Alas, the International Quilt Festival in Houston is over. But I thought you might like to see some of the people and quilts at the show. Here you see my friend, Emily Parson’s beautiful quilt on display in the Full Bloom exhibit.
And one last view of my Libby’s Leaves quilt next to that of Alex Anderson’s quilt. You have until November 5 to put in a bid on the quilts being auctioned to raise money for Libby Lehman. Check out the auction website here. Wish you could have been at Houston with us. It was so much fun!
