Inspiration

Home from Machine Quilters Showcase (MQS) with all kinds of ideas & inspirations from classes taught by Linda V. Taylor, Karen McTavish, Dusty Farrell, Myrna Ficken, Deloa Jones, Claudia Pfeil, Judy Woodworth, Cathy Wiggins, Angela Walters, Patti Buhler, & Pat Harrison.

Vendor booths were also sources of ideas & trends, pattern, fabrics, new threads, etc.

It was thrilling to see my Golden Rosemaling displayed in Sue Schmieden’s booth. (See also August 20, 2010 post.

This year I made another of her designs, Feathers & Lace, using Madeira “gold” thread on black sateen, & contributed it to the MQS Audacious Auction. It sold for $550.00

Feathers & Lace

And then there were the show quilts- -exquisite examples of quilting & stunning uses of color.

Now it’s time for me to start implementing some of the techniques observed & learned.
