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.

Yikes! Its the Garage Again!

Yikes!  The garage is a major disaster AGAIN!

And my poor car is sitting out in the hot sun yet again.  Time for another cleanup.

The E.A.T. Group from Ithaca comes calling.

Oh Oh, the vacumn is out, that means company is coming.

I think I will just wait right here quietly till it's all over.

The company arrives (the E.A.T. Group from Ithaca) and after a class and lunch its time for show and tell. 
June had woven some strips from some batiks she purchased.

And Tracy had finished a jacket she started at my recent class at Casowasco.

Its Just Too Tall

My amaryllis is just too tall this year to stand up on its own and has to lean against something for support.

Another Sewing Day at Marcia's Studio

Beth has this wonderful quilt from last weekend's workshop all but finished.

And will probably make another using molas instead of the arrows.  The pallet she chose is just about perfect for them
Beth was selecting a few more molas from my recent Panama trip to add to her collection.  Suki decided she needed to check them out as well.

And Beth has yet another One Block Wonder quilt in progress.

Pretty landscape from photos

How could I resist a turquoise jacket?

Some of Janet Root's beauties.

What child wouldn't love this dinosaur quilt?

Perinton Quilt Show

Saturday I was fortunate to be able to vend at the Perinton Quilt Show.  This is Cindi Welch's interpretation of Pat Pauly's Leaf Quilt.

I loved this interpretation of the New York Beauty.
Beautiful Landscape. 
Pat Berardi's beautiful tucked silk quilt.  She teaches a class on this technique at Sew Creative in Fairport.
An interesting use of a cross stitch piece in a quilt.

My Poor Magnolia Tree

My huge magnolia tree usually is glorious around the first week in May.  This year it tried to bloom in April and got caught in a frost.

Last week it valiantly tried again but the blooms are a bit blighted to say the least.

Two Day Jacket/Embellishment Class for at Casowasco

Last week I taught a 2 day Embellishment/Jacket Class for the Tompkins County Quilt Guild at Casowasco Retreat.  The first technique was Seminole Patchwork followed by Seminole embellished with gold thread. 

An advantage at Casowasco is that you can also work all evening.

But we took time out to shop after dinner

The first day they also made fringe on an hairplace lace loom , crunched fabric and mystery fabric.

Day two most people made jackets from patterns or directions I had brought.  This beauty was made from Marimoko fabric.

And a strip of Seminole Patchwork from the first day.

Bog Coat Class and Fashion Show for the Mohawk Valley Guild

Last week I was invited to do a Fashion Show then a one day Bog Coat Class for the Mohawk Valley Guild.  The class was in a local college with a large airy room and a nearby cafeteria. 

After lots of fun and hard work the first bog coat was ready to have the sleeves and hem finished and a band added.
Paula Schwartz made hers from one of my quilted saris and some beautiful Guatemalan fabric.
