I love to travel all over the globe shopping for textiles to add to my wearable art. I have taught quilting to school children in Nepal, seminole patchwork to seamstresses in Thailand, and jackets and embellishment to quilters in Turkey where I also served as a judge at 2 of their International Quilt Shows. I have created garments for 5 Fairfield and Bernina Fashion Shows and teach classes on embellishment and wearable art. Lately I have been leaning more toward making art quilts.

Quilt Surface Design Symposium -QSDS

After the Quilt Show I spent a wonderful five days taking a class with Jane Sassaman at QSDS in Columbus, Ohio. This was the fourth year I have attended and it gets better every year. This class was using abstract designs. Connie St. Clair did abstract leaves for her first attempt. Here are her templates. One of Jane's Quilts and my favorite.
Still more of her work.
I decided to do bugs and made wings for them.
My first attempt at trying to pull it together.
Connie's first round on a green background she later rejected.

Another classmate whose name I as usual didn't note. The wings looked a little boring so red trim was added.
Another classmate's work in progress.
This was the beginning of a work by Barbara Lange from Germany. Check out the gorgeous quilts on her web page

I just loved this one.

Connie switched to a black background.

A small bug adds to the mix and I try to figure out which wings should show over the edge and which should not.

Barbara added a gorgeous butterfly to her piece.
More baby bugs join in (if you leave bugs overnight stuff happens) and I add a purple border which apparently is too dark and I will have to lighten up.

I didn't take photos in the other rooms as most were posted with no photo signs.
