A late sum up.

Festival of Quilts 2014

I know this is well over now but exhaustion (the good kind) and a holiday means I am only just getting around to this. Above is the calm before the storm, just before the beginning of the show. The rest went by in a huge wonderful whirl. So busy and so great!

Festival of Quilts

The one photo that I did take of my booth in total is blurry so I have put together a little Pic Monkey collage.
A big thank you to all who came by and said hello.
It was a thrill meeting people from all over the world, especially the Norwegian, Swedish, Danish and Icelandic ladies that came to my workshops (not forgetting the British!) Sorry no photos. A ninety minutes class is pretty full on and photo taking completely slipped my mind.

It was a great show with some outstanding work. I particularly liked the work of these ladies Anne Johnston, Susan Shie and Leslie Tucker Jenison (along with the other work of the Fine Art Quilt Masters) all of whom I got to meet and chat to :D
Time to get back to work!

Still Life Surface Design


Surface Design Workshop from Quilt Routes

I am teaching two 90 minute workshops at this years Festival of Quilts.
The workshop is about playing and having a bit of fun. Experimenting with paint and getting ideas.

Surface Design Workshop from Quilt Routes

The good news for me is that the workshops are just about sold out, but there is one space left on the Friday and two spaces left on the Saturday. Details here on the Festival of Quilts website.

I did a run through with some friends to check on timings and here is Michelle's finished piece, done in a really unique way.
