A little break from my Houston "report" and pictures to share some pictures from our CO West Quilt Guild meeting last night. Our speaker was Jan Krentz who gave a wonderful program and trunk show of her precisely pieced and beautiful quilts!
Today she did a workshop to make this quilt: 1000 Pyramids. Those signed up were super excited to take this class today.
I actually taught a class today at Hi Fashion on embroidery/embellishing. I sure had a great time - I hope the class did! I taught about ten stitches today and part two of the class will be in February!
Back to Jan Krentz. I was so impressed with what a nice, kind person she is. We were told she was also voted Teacher of the Year once too, so I'm sure the students in her class today had a wonderful experience!
I was really drawn to the quilt above, on the right. She used African fabrics but I have a selection of Australian fabrics I think would look very nice in a quilt like this....
There is that quilt again! The instructions are in this book Hunter Star Quilts & Beyond. The book came home with me, so maybe you will see an Australian version of the quilt above before too long :)
