January, 2015: Happy New Year to all. 2014 was a very good year and I am looking forward to a great 2015. I will be doing lots of traveling and teaching which I love to do and lots of time in my studio which I love even more. I am developing a new class called Artful log cabins where you recreate a photograph with log cabin blocks. I love creating art quilts and I love making log cabin quilts so this puts the two together.
Here are three examples of artful log cabins.
I am already scheduled to teach it 4 times in 2015. February in Santa Fe at Santa Fe quilting, June in Greenville New York at the Hudson River Valley Art Workshops, October in Paducah Kentucky at the quilt museum and Houston Texas at the Quilt Show. See my itinerary for more information.
My online course are going great! I have three starting in January and there are still spaces left, so let me know if you want to join us. Color, Composition and Design. 8 lessons, two weeks to create a quilt to answer the parameters in your own style then send an image to me for a critique. I am just starting a new online course on working in a series!! Very excited about that. It will be 5 assignments with three weeks to finish each step in the series. For more information go to teaching and pull down for online courses.
My Alegre Retreat which I run in Gateway Colorado is filling nicely and I am looking forward to teaching along side of some great artists, Joe Cunningham, Jane Dunnewold and Linda Colsh. For more information about Alegre Retreat the Art Quilters Getaway go to www.alegreretreat.com.
So many inspirations to get the creative juices flowing strong for 2015.
