Drowning in Gorgeous Quilts… and SNOW!!!

I don’t know how many times I have heard the question: “Did you bring the snow with you from Canada?” We have had two major snow events since I arrived in Hampton, VA late Monday night.

The slide show tells all, don’t you think? Despite the weather my class was busy today. Quilters are always keen, willing and able to attend workshops, any many times the weather will not keep them away. I had 19 out of 23 registered participants in my “Layers of Intrigue” Workshop today. I know of one more who plans to attend tomorrow – and those that are coming in for the second day only… I am arriving in class early, will spend my lunch hour and stay late.

Meanwhile the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival is in full swing and the quilts we judged yesterday in addition to the special exhibitions are gorgeous. It is a privilege once again to have been chosen as a judge. I am in awe of the talent and the stunning word I was able to assess and provide constructive critiques for.

Thank you to all students who attended class today and are planning on participating tomorrow and Saturday. I have a few openings for the Kantha Workshop, if anyone is close by and wants to take in one class. My lecture this afternoon was well attended and the questions about my innovative connections were varied and kept me on my toes!

Enjoy the images, some were taken through windows with safety glass. I liked the effect… I did go outside and took the pictures of the snow covered branches much to the surprise of the Mancuso staff… they could not believe a Canadian would take pictures of snow! I am so glad I was able to add to the amusement of so many. 😉

    Hah! I love your photos through the blinds. Reminds me of Klee (yes, I’ve been working on my line homework)


    • Helene, this was the safety glass, not blinds. I could hardly detect the lines when I looked through the window, but when I took the snapshot the lines where very strong. I do like the effect, it diffuses everything and adds an element of surprise. Can’t wait to see your lines journal!
