ECCO- Oakhurst Retreat
I talked my friends into posing with their quilts at our annual Quilt Retreat at ECCO Conference Center.. Kathy is making a quilt for her hubby who told her the other day that "He did not have a quilt for himself."
Barbara is working with Batiks and enjoying the beauty of all the colors and designs.
Linda found this quilt at a parking lot sale, just a topper, but now it has a back and she is about to quilt it... Lucky lady, it is beautiful!
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.
