Quilting Adventures

I will be doing a three day class in TX at the end of August the first of September at Quilting Adventures, there are still a few openings for this retreat in the hill country of Texas.
This will be a design class where my students will be learning techniques to free themselves from conventional methods of working.
We will be fusing designs related to trees and leaves. This process is so fun and fast and liberating I expect them all to experience an epiphany of freedom.

This is just one example of how I work a design. The drawing at the top was my beginning point. The first quilt was my first effort, but I really didn't like it and then a friend spilled coffee all over it, so I was forced to remake the quilt a second time. The second effort was so much better and went on to win an award in Houston. Sometimes disaster turns into success.

Looks like a lot of fun. I'd love to go to this retreat, but it won't work for my schedule. I hope it is offered again......any chance you are coming to So. Cal?

The second one is much more vibrant - although I like them both. I too wish I could take one of your workshops. Perhaps one day.
