Empty Spools 2012 at Asilomar

I had an amazing time in Pacific Grove this week and my workshop with the incredibly talented Hollis Chatelain exceeded my expectations. 

I met wonderful new friends...

My workstation was right next to "Ernest", the nickname for this breathtaking piece (Innocence) behind us. It must be seen in person to truly appreciate. 

I met this "wild" lady named Nancy, who reminds me of Ruth Gordon's character in the movie "Harold and Maude'. The "Maude" character is a hero of mine, and someone I truly relate to, so Nancy and I bonded instantly. And to top it off, she is quite an all around artist! I was impressed...    :)

We were in an awesome room this year, and the work that came out of our class was so beautiful!

African-American Quilters of Los Angeles Lecture/Trunk Show

Last Sunday, I had the pleasure of speaking at the AAQLA guild meeting. What a wonderfully warm and talented group! It was truly an honor. 
  
    
During their show and tell, I was really blown away by the diversity of quilts.
  
  
Here is my buddy Patsy, from the LA Modern Quilt Guild, sharing her beautiful bags, and then the reaction from the audience. As I type this, Patsy is making a custom bag for me to carry my rolled quilts. I'm super excited!!!
