We live in such a beautiful country! Here is a view of the Rockies taken from my airline seat as I returned home from my last flight of the year. I was lucky to end my teaching year with the Clark County Quilters in Vancouver WA. A warm and jovial group, they kept me entertained and happy to be a quilt teacher.
Over the past year I’ve met up with many talented people who attend to my goofy lectures, take my goofy classes, and send me photos of what they have made. Here is a fun little quilt completed by Linda from a class at the Chicago Show in April.
And here is beautiful quilt by Jill. She sent this image of her woodcut quilt made in the Creating Graphic Imagery class in Santa Clara, CA in October. She says the berries, apples, and flowers depicted in the piece are all important crops in the Pajaro Valley where she lives.
It’s been a delight traveling the nation and learning so much from my fellow quilters. But I’m taking a few months off now. It’s time to unpack, de-clutter, take a breath, and make some new work.
