Art Quilts

I just read a post by Alison Schwabe that really hit home. I so agree with what she is saying. Take a look and let me know what you think. I try to encourage my students to take what I am teaching them and make it their own, and sometimes that happens. I am always amazed and taught by my students but so many people are fearful when they should be joyful at the opportunity to make art that is their own.

Hi, Frieda,Thanks for two inspiring, helpful days in your Dallas workshops a couple of weeks ago! Your quilts and your hand dyes are beautiful and amazing. Thanks again for your generous, inspired teaching!Carolyn
I just received this in my email from Carolyn in Dallas. The workshop was two weeks ago. I always tell my students if they send me digital images I will blog them.
Beautiful work Carolyn.

Peace in the World


From Lao-Tzu

If there is to be peace in the world,

There must be peace in the nations.

If there is to be peace in the nations,

There must be peace in the cities.

If there is to be peace in the cities,

There must be peace between neighbors.

If there is to be peace between neighbors,

There must be peace in the home.

If there is to be peace in the home,

There must be peace in the heart.

And I say there must be piece in the hand.

Quilt Expo Madison WI

Anne Lullie and I are off this morning on our big adventure to Madison WI. We will be in booth #418 at the Quilt Expo Show and each of us will be teaching classes. If you are up in the area be sure and stop in, but if you are looking for something to do this weekend it would be a beautiful drive up to lovely Madison.

The show is at the Alliance Center and is one of the nicest shows in the Midwest. Well worth the trip!

Saturday morning Nancy Zieman and I will be on the local TV. Be sure and check it out. I will definitely look more presentable then this. Here is a link to a local newspaper article.

Teaching in Dallas


I'm off to Dallas to teach Inspiration from the Garden and Laughing Leaves with a lecture and demo on Machine Quilting. I haven't been to Dallas in 30 years, do you think it has changed much? I know it will be hotter there, I remember that much. It has really cooled off here in the last two days and is raining this morning, residuals from the hurricane down south we've been told. I hope my flight takes off on time!!
