Los Angeles Modern Quilt Guild Show, October 2017

Last Saturday night we ventured out locally and went to the Los Angeles Modern Quilt Guild Show. It is an annual event and that keeps getting bigger and better. There is so much talent in the LA Modern Guild. All these beautiful quilts were put up for a one evening show…and what an evening it was! Everyone enjoyed the quilts and friends, as well as the wine and hors d’oeuvres.

An Improv-Piecing Workshop with Sherri Lynn Wood


It isn’t often that I have the chance to take a class lately. When I heard that Sherri Lynn Wood was going to be in Los Angeles I knew that I had to sign-up. I’ve always been a fan of her work. Sherri’s use of color and improv piecing is fantastic. Fifteen ladies and I let the fabric fly as we created our own improve works of art. I really like her design approach and her teaching methods were inspiring. With 16 people in the class the space was tight and nobody seemed to mind. Everybody produced a beautiful piece by the end of the day. For me it was very inspiring to be in a room surrounded by so many creative people. Each person had their own creative take on the method she was teaching and that resulted in a variety of improve piecing. Great job ladies! And Sherri, thank you for joining LAMQG for this incredible day. Be sure to check Sherri’s blog for more of her work and class schedule.
