QuiltCon 2016

Honestly, I was overwhelmed by the beauty of this show…definitely one of the best quilt shows I’ve ever been to! I volunteered at the California MQG membership booth all four days, enjoyed the show with Greg and our friend Nancy King on Saturday, and went back with Greg on Sunday…there was just so much to see and be inspired by. There were too many quilts to show them all, so here are just a few that really got my creativity flowing. And, did you notice that one of my quilts was there? I was honored to be included in such an incredibly talented group of quilters. Thank you to all the people at the MQG for everything they’ve done…it was truly outstanding. I can’t wait for the next show!

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.
