Hello Everyone, I am excited to share some great news with you. A lot of good stuff is happening in my quilt life these days and I’m celebrating. In fact, be sure to read to the bottom of this post to find out about a GiveAway!!
I WON AN AWARD!
My quilt, MidCentury Modern: Black and White won a Prize at MidAtlantic Quilt Festival Competition for Best Use of Negative Space in the MidCentury Modern Category. The award included a Ribbon and a Cash Prize that I am sharing with my Long Arm quilter because her work really complemented my design.
This MidCentury Modern Curves Quilt in a minimalist black & white palette is a big departure for me.
I am so thrilled to receive this recognition. This series of quilts has been so satisfying. I’m starting a new version this week and I have one more that I might start soon.
New Class Added
I’ll be teaching several modern workshops at the Minnesota Quilters Conference this summer. Due to high demand, they have added an additional section of the MidCentury Modern Quilt Workshop. REGISTRATION: click here. To get information about the classes, visit my earlier blog post.
Hear my recent Interview with Quilter Pat Sloan!
I had the pleasure of being interviewed by Quilting Master Pat Sloan! We had a lot of fun exploring ideas about how I got into quilting and my love of color and improvisation as a modern quilter. Lots of laughs–it felt like I was having tea (or wine…) with an old friend. Thanks Pat for this opportunity!! On this March 18, 2019 podcast, you can also hear from Shannon Fraser, Marci Debetaz and Kelli Fannin. Be sure to check out earlier shows or subscribe to the podcast, American Patchwork and Quilting Radio.
