There is getting to be quite of few of these. Quilts. As I rethink my living room based on recent interior mishaps (I didn't even include in that rundown the hole we put in the ceiling while traipsing around in the attic during my creative bug shoot-long story) I can't help but want carve out a more intended space for some of my patchwork keepsakes. This ladder has lived either in the downstairs studio or in the living room, entirely dependent on my mood and what I had for breakfast, for the past couple of years. We tend to like it in the studio though. It's a nice retrieval spot for sending quilts back and forth to trade shows, trunk shows and the like. So in the living room, I'm thinking. Thinking. And looking. Any lovely interior quilt displays you care to share? I imagine this will involve power tools which has me very keen.
Sometimes I get to accompany the quilts where they go. They're generous like that. Next week, many of these patchies and I will be headed to Colorado! I can't wait! I have a packed schedule of visits and workshops at some lovely shops & a guild too. Here's the rundown if you're in the area and want to sew with me or ask me what toothpaste I use:
::Friday, August 3rd, I'll be at Crafty Laine in Historic downtown Monument for a visit @ 1:00pm
::Friday, August 3rd, I'll be speaking & visiting with the Front Range Modern Quilt Guild also in Monument @ 6:00pm
::Saturday, August 4th, I'll be making Multi-Tasker Totes with the FR Modern Quilt Guild, @ 9:00am
::Saturday, August 4th, I'll be meeting & greeting my friends at Fancy Tiger in Denver @7:00pm
::Sunday, August 5th, I'll be teaching back to back workshops for the new Feather Bed Quilt (that's right!) and the Multi-Tasker Tote beginning @ 9:00am & @ 1:00pm respectively
::Monday I will collapse in my bed back at home and my mind will be spinning with new conversations and inspirations from my trip. But you don't have to come to that.
I would love to see you, and hear about what's sewin' down with you in CO. I'm excited! That Feather Bed Quilt pattern is just about set to pop here, so hopefully I can send the pdf out as a postcard to you from my trip next week. Good weekend friends, xo, AM
