Ecco Quilt Retreat
Ok, I promised I would just show hands in this photo.. The Sierra Mountain Quilters are working on the Opportunity Quilt. Cutting, starching, gluing the applique flowers together.. We had a wonderful 4 days. This is an annual gathering, not too far from our homes, but a wonderful escape.
I am a mixed media fiber/quilt artist who loves to work with gourds,and jewelry. I am easily distracted with the next project, and have many going at one time. I have been teaching Fabric Dyeing and Beginning gourd art for many years. I am blessed with my own home studio. We live in the rolling hills near Yosemite National Park, in central Calif. U.S.A. This is a place of Inspiration, Blue Skies and Great Friends. I volunteer with several organizations,and have memberships in P.E.O., Coarsegold Historical So., Sierra Art Trails, Madera Circle Gallery, Yosemite Western Artist, Timberline Gallery and Sierra Mountain Quilters. I teach at my home studio and at local quilt gatherings.
