Best of the Valley Quilt Show- April 8-10
"Who Me?" was juried into the Best of the Valley Quilt Show. Charlotte Rogers, a teacher from Visalia area of Central Calif. came to my house to teach our YoYo's her way of looking at Portrait Quilts.. We had so much fun, quilting, laughing, and lunch... I think I wrote about this on another blog, but now it is finished.
The beading and little crystals don't show in the photos.. Nancy Hyde entered her portrait in the show also.. Wonder if there will be more from Charlotte's classes.. . Each one is so very different..Of course, we all have such different personalities and experiences. Guess I was thinking of flowers.
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.
