I am on my way to the Sisters Quilt Show. My sister Wendy and my youngest daughter Aimee will be joining me as they will be taking classes all week.
This is one of my favorite places to teach. I love the area as well as the show is so well organized.
I am teaching a new children's quilt made out of all cotton fabrics, my Leaf Sampler embellishment, The Pomegranate Table Runner from my Crimson Tweed book and a creative design class from my 'Travel Journal' series.
This week Kelly and I played in the wool as we choose 100 fat quarters for an order. Wendy does amazing dyeing and her colors are so scrumptious that it is hard to part with many of them. We have an ongoing joke in the office that no one wants to pick wool for an order as it is normally one for me one for the order. That is why we all have such large stashes!
Wieke van Keulen from Holland sent me this wonderful picture of her version of my Ginger Grove Quilt. I love her colors and that she made a smaller version of my quilt.
We have a few friends who have been coming to my house for our new 'Stitch Group'. It has been fun as we have been concentrating on embroidery stitches.
