A year ago Sharon Wright came to our guild and gave a presentation and workshop. I had taken a few classes from her at Quilt Fest (Utah Quilt Guild) and she is just a wonderful teacher and has SO many great ideas. She challenged us to think outside the box and to be creative, even when using a pattern, to be creative with the setting or the borders or something to change it up a bit. She showed us many, many examples that were so inspiring. Then she had a "door prize" drawing, and those who were picked got to go pick something out of a huge pile of things she brought from her sewing room and they were challenged to make something out of it. I remember Lucina made hers right away and I posted a picture of that some time ago. At this last guild meeting Mary showed her Penguins on Parade - made from the penguin fabric she received from Sharon.
And Marie showed this beautiful quilt made from the nature panels she received.
I am being challenged creatively right now by making my daughter's art quilt! I'm having fun though! Yesterday I spent a lot of time picking out fabric and coming up with a plan and last night I began the hand appliqué! The real fun is going to come with the embellishing :)
Have a fun day and do something to celebrate our love of quilting!!
