The last weekend was busy. There was tracing, drawing, coloring, cutting, selecting colors, snipping, encouraging chatter and satisfied “ooohhhhs” and “aaahhhhs”. I was teaching “Twisting the Landscape” in my former hometown. When reflecting on how often I have taught a workshop in Calgary since I moved seven years ago we realized that this was only the second time I was invited to teach. (The first time was during Quilt Canada 2010.)
It was great to be back: An eager group of 15 participants from the “Quilted Mouse Quilt Guild” gathered in SE Calgary on Friday morning, and soon everyone was fully immersed in the design process. The first day was focused on identifying line and shape, assessing value and introducing color to the repeating designs.
The evening lecture welcomed 55 interested quilters. It generated great questions and interaction. Days two and three went by in a flash. I was particularly impressed with the amount of work accomplished in this classroom. The images in the slideshow above provide a brief glance into the great weekend enjoyed by all. Thank you, Quilted Mouse Guild members for organizing such a wonderful venue and gathering an enthusiastic group!
Our timing was superb… On Monday morning we woke up to rain which quickly turned into huge snowflakes and made our departure quick and painless! We are glad we missed this taste of winter – it will be here soon enough!
