Pat Pauly's quilt below.
Connie and Vinnie had registered for the class too~! It was fun to share the time with them and my new Canadian friend, Karen.
Pat is a truly exuberant woman. Talented and driven. I love her work. I mentioned before that I like quilts that reflect the maker. I want to look at it and see what makes them tick.
Pat made "George" using the same technique...enlarging her pattern, then making a pattern from freezer paper. This assures that the scale is preserved. Check this out...
The following quilts were some of my favorites. I did photograph the labels for the maker's name...but I can't read them. Sorry in advance.
My friend, Elaine's entry is to the left. It won Best Interpretation of Theme! It is a pic from a garden she loves, printed by Julie at Red-Dog Enterprises, with organza overlay at the top of music.
These are only a few of the quilts I loved. I was so entangled in Iron Quilter that Saturday and Pat's class all day Sunday, that I didn't get to SEE the entire show.
I have learned:
- The Ott light I won in Iron Quilter is awesome! I should have had one of these years ago.
- James Gondolfini. 51. Cool person. Excellent actor. RIP
- Darcy is officially an 8th grade graduate! Next year, Mount Saint Mary's. Proud of her.
- NoNo. Anyone try it? Why don't we talk about the fuzzy facial hair women of my age start to experience. Lower estrogen levels to blame. I hate it.
- My friend, Martha, has started fostering kittens this year. She gets them through to the time they can go to shelter to be adopted. See one of the babies crawling on her back! They like to play with her long braid. I think what she is doing for these kittens is so commendable.
- Take a look at the Iron Quilter second hand....Ken Reek, Margaret's (a participant) husband, did an wonderful job with pics and commentary on the entire experience. So if you missed it.....take a look NOW!
