We arrived early Thursday to choose our Schoolhouse workshops. These went from 10:20- 6:00 and varied in length from 15-30 minutes. My blog today: Photo heavy; words light
New info concerning this quilt. It is made my Joyce Lawrence Cambron. Isn't is fascinating?! Her schoolhouse was titled
"Rethinking Curved Piecing" and if you click on that title you'll be brought to a you tube video with the same title! (see you don't even have to be at Quilt Market to take a class from her)
If you like what you see Joyce can also be found on Facebook. Thank you Joyce for letting me know.
Hugs N Kisses. She was super charming and touts the use of 50% soluble paper that can be washed and left in applique or hexagons. A wonderful product, imho!! Go to her website if you want more information.
Next up was Jo Morton and Andover fabrics.
|Love the striped sashing and the basket setting.|
|I had no idea Jo was doing batiks!|
|Look for this BOM with fabrics by Jo only available with this BOM.|
I was a mile away from Edyta Sitar, Laundry Basket Quilts, but I liked her so much. She is not only a wonderful designer and talented quilter but quite a business woman! I talked to her later at her booth and she knew all about Sven the Gnome! I guess you never know who might be reading your blog! lolBetsy Chuchian, Betsy's Best was promoting her latest book, Lizzie's Legacy. Out of all the schoolhouse quilts, I loved hers the best.
Renee Nanneman of Need'l Love.
Joanna with Fig Tree & Co. She says she isn't a public speaker but I thought she was pretty funny.....talented too!
Tula Pink's schoolhouse? I'd heard the name and the description said tell a story with a 100 block sampler quilt. If you've read my blog for any length of time you know I'm a sucker for sampler quilts. This isn't what I expected, but I was pleasantly entertained by Tula! It was standing room only and it's obvious she's got a following.
After this full day we still had sample spree that night, which I had only heard about! I'm so glad we had a bottle of wine while waiting in line......lol
