It’s an information packed lecture showing a series of quilts from start to finish, how I pull together a concept with imagery to create a design, products that I prefer and why, funny (but not so much at the time) stories about mishaps and problems I ran into and how I resolved them.
After the lecture, I always bring out Primordial Sea since a large portion of the lecture is about making this quilt.
In the afternoon I had a Quilters Alliance Save our Stories interview, that will go into the historical quilting archives and stored at the Library of Congress.
Lone Star Reception
In the evening Karey Bresenhan hosted a wonderful reception to kick off the exhibits that go along with the beautiful, and big!, Lonestars lll book at festival and the new Texas Quilt Museum opening in La Grange next week.I have two quilts in the book and exhibits that were made during my years living in Austin, TX. This is where I first became friends with Frances, Kathy and Sherry, we were all part of the same art quilt group and created a significant series of group quilts with a number of group members, exploring various themes based on color studies to begin with and eventually incorporating a variety of subject matter.
