New Endeavor

My good friend Margaret M. Sheehan and I are writing a book!!! After teaching quilting and art over the years we have noticed a timidity on the part of traditional quilters as to how to transition into Art Quilting. Well, HERE WE ARE!! This ‘Primer’ will guide you through basic steps and techniques to add to your quilting repertoire.

We will be teaching some of these techniques at a retreat in Vergennes VT on Feb. 28,29,Mar 1, 2020. Strong House Inn will be our host, a lovely Victorian Inn, 2 nights lodging, all meals and two teachers!!! https://www.stronghouseinn.com/ Come have a blast on your one bonus day in 4 years!! “Leap into Art Quilting”

Finally have a good picture of this piece.  30L x 70W  study in black and white depicting the life cycle of the forest. Wanted to keep it simple in monochromatic scheme with touches of color.  Well…so much for simple…
