Pictures speak a thousand words… isn’t that how the saying goes? Today’s slideshow is a recap of the last three days of teaching at QBL (Quilting by the Lake) in Syracuse. The workshop is titled “Blend It” and the objective is to explore the limitless possibilities silk fabrics offer and can contribute to art quilts. Twelve adventure loving quilters gathered and worked tirelessly in a supportive community. Did we have fun?
I can honestly say that we had a lot of fun – we even came back to the classroom Thursday night to maximize the time and the results are impressive. The recommendation from the students: Make this class a five day workshop. Thank you to Sally, Cindy, Fay, Linda, Maggie, Linda, Janet, Sue, Liz, Linda, Susan, and Karen. Keep blending the silk with cottons and other fabrics – you have the knowledge and the tools! Can’t wait to see where you go next and how you push the proverbial envelope!
QBL is not QBL for me without the apron auction. This was the last time to contribute an embellished apron to this great scholarship fundraiser. In total I have created 7 aprons since 2007, one for each week I have taught at QBL. This year the teacher line up was not nearly as extensive but we did well!
