As promised, here are a few shots from our guild party last night at Flavin Glover's house. This photo was taken from the stairs, looking down on the family room. Do you see that U-shaped desk behind the sofa? Click on the picture to see bigger. That's where Flavin sews - yes, right in the middle of the family room! See the closet on the back wall? That's where she stores her stash. How convenient!
Everyone brought finger food - what a spread! Flavin provided drinks. Her husband said the blessing and I really enjoyed chatting with him for a few minutes. He's just as nice as Flavin.
Here's a little vignette inside their home: one of her quilts hanging with more small quilts artfully arranged on chairs. We were free to wander through the house. Every bed had a Flavin Glover quilt on it - quilts I've see before in books and on the internet. What a thrill it was to see them all in her home.
I spotted these little whittled trees on her kitchen cupboard. I have a feeling her husband made them. I think I'm in love with these little trees.
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.
