What a crazy, busy 2 weeks it has been, just returned from the NC Symposium, a day at home and then onto Alabama. I never do these back to backs...these old bones can't take it but sometimes it just happens...The Quilt Symposium of Alabama was lovely down to every detail...
and some on stage in the auditorium where the quilt show was being held.
Even though the same 2 patterns were used, each piece was so unique because of the wonderful fabric choices and color combinations chosen.
I also did a workshop on Shaded Florals, using patterns of flowers, different values of fabric and Shiva paintsticks. Again, each was so individual depending on choices and every one was lovely. Dottie finished her shading (left side) making it really come alive. Dottie is also a water color artist so this was a natural for her to do. M E's is on the right. M E goes by her initials...which stands for a really beautiful first name but she prefers M E....I think my husband had a nun in Catholic school with this name.... ( - :
Norma chose a very different color palette which turned out beautiful. Norma is a great grandmother and her many years of sewing really showed in her amazing technical skills.
This is Sherrie's and again, a wonderful and lively color palette....I've asked students to send me a picture of their finished piece and I hope they do....I'll have to do some more bragging on them. Once again, thanks to a wonderful group of gals who took my workshops, made me laugh and inspired me with their wonderful creativity.
