You can see from a sneak preview that the photography is wonderful, very large, graphic and colorful.
The photography of the quilt projects for the book were taken by Guy Yoyotte-Husson and the pictures of my studio and family were taken my dad Mike Morris and my sister Wendy Morris.The graphic designer was Elodie Beillevert (on the right below) and the translator was Elisabeth Fuchs, who also interpreted for my classes. The Book was edited by Carol Veillon the owner of Quiltmania magazine. Thanks to all for a superb job.
This is a complete picture of all of the teachers who attended the show. Due to the volcano only teachers from France, England and myself were able to make it.
I taught three classes and met wonderful people from all over Europe. They were very keen to learn about wool and the use of dimension using embroidery and textural fabrics.
PourL'Amour du Fil designed a home for each teacher who attended. Due to the volcano and the fact that I was traveling in Europe prior to the disaster I am the only foreign teacher who made it to France. Here are a few pictures from my home.
I am so sorry my dear friend Sarah Fielke from Australia was not able to get here above is our quilt we did together for Down under quilts, 'Peacocks and Plumage'.
Below are some pictures of Sarah's home her in Nantes. Her quilts looked great. I just wish she was able to be here to enjoy them.
It has been very busy here. The show went until 7pm each evening, we then have dinner and collapse into bed each night. Exhausting but wonderful! Thanks to all involved.
Off to Paris this morning. Will blog again soon.
