I took a bit of time out this afternoon to attend the Quilt Symposium of Alabama, held this year in Birmingham. They sure timed it well - my last week in town! I enjoyed viewing the quilt show - lots of beauties, many made by good friends. I couldn't help but notice the quilted portrait above.
Here's the tag - what a lovely tribute! This is as close as I came to having a quilt in the show. It's always heartwarming to see that someone has taken my technique/book and made something beautiful. It makes all the long hours, weeks, and months spent writing a quilt book worthwhile!
I'm enjoying having Daughter 1 and SIL here for a few days. They attend the Miss Alabama pageant each evening, and are enjoying some of their favorite Birmingham restaurants during the day. I also had them go through some stuff in Emily's room today. We came up with a huge pile to donate - gotta get rid of it this weekend.
The move is approaching so fast now. At the beginning of the year it seemed so far away. Now we have less than a week left here! Where did this week go???
I am a wife, mother to two daughters, an avid art quilter, cooking contest entrant, and dog lover. My book, FABRIC PHOTO PLAY, AQS, 2005, demonstrates my original technique for making portrait quilts. My second book (with Peggy Rhodes), Quick and Easy Hexie Quilts was recently released.
