Peachland, BC Quilt Workshop Memories

email size Linda Schmidt hangingAs quilt teachers we often hear “We will get together and show each other our finished work. We promise to send pictures.” or something along this idea. I am not sure if any of you can imagine how it makes my heart sing to actually open one, or more emails and receive a gallery of images with finished art quilts started in one of my workshops.

Last November I was invited to Peachland, BC to gather with the Quilt Canada 2013 Local Organizing Committee. The group had received a bursary from the Canadian Quilter’s Association to invite one teacher. It was to honor everyone’s hard work and commitment in  working together to deliver an exceptionally well organized conference. Imagine my surprise to be chosen as the teacher, and even better, the group decided they wanted me to deliver one of my favorite three-day workshops, “Color, Composition & Dimension.”

Here is the recap of my time in late November 2013. And here are images of the finished work. Make sure you visit the original post and then carefully look at the images below. I am so proud of everyone! Thanks Joanne, for taking the pictures and sending them along to me.
