Until I get my knee replaced there will not be any classes scheduled, but I will try and post various things for you to try so you won't forget about me and what a good time we will have when we do get back together.
I am going visiting me three daughters for most of July. I will be about a week at each of their homes, and then off to teach at the Silk Painters International Conference in Santa Fe, New Mexico. And if that isn't enough fun it is the bi-annual Ricks Reunion, and my family is in charge, the first week of August. The posts will be sparse during that time, but check now and then.
I'll look forward to seeing you again in the near future.
PS e-mail me photos of your work to post. firstname.lastname@example.org

Yesterday afternoon I came home and worked on the border of this quilt. I had already printed the photo on the fabric, but did not know what would make it interesting and fun to do. I had purchased the "Child friendly" fabrics awhile back when I thought I would do something else with them. Then I thought of making the border look like children's building blocks. I printed block letters and numbers onto fabric and cut them out and set them in a tumbling block pattern I had used much larger for a grandchild quilt a few years ago. I think they worked. I'm excited to finish this quilt. It would be a good Christmas gift for my sister. The child in the middle is our mother, flanked by her sister Val and brother Homer. Love the dolls and the hair bows.
Don't forget to practice!
