It is time for a break, so last weekend I took a couple of days off, drove 4 hours to Portland and attended MQX. As always the quilts were beautiful, (even mine!) and the people were wonderful. I took three classes and have been overflowing with ideas ever since. I loved my class with Jamie Wallen, even though it was not the class I thought it was, he is a very nice man. My favorite class, hands down was the Color it Done class with Sherry Rogers Harrison. I have the pattern for this beautiful applique quilt (sorry no photo yet) that I really want to make, but alas I am not so great at applique, so I took Sherry's class with the thought in mind to paint the quilt. I am absolutely loving the technique and will be starting work on the new quilt this afternoon. Below are a couple of photos from MQX and a photo or two of my Color it Done project!
Feel free to comment and let me know what you think.
|Peacock Fancy! Yes it got accepted into MQX. No it didn't win anything, but then I knew it wouldn't I was just thrilled to have it accepted!|
|I also had both dresses entered, sadly neither won, but again it was a thrill just to see them there! Maybe next year.....|
|This is my homework from my Color it Done class. In this photo I have put down my base paint, as you can tell I still had a lot to do. Below is the finished block!|
|This is my finished block. I am very very happy with how it turned out. Not bad for my first time!|
