It was very stimulating to raise questions and rethink ideas about what is traditional, modern, liberated, etc. Violet Craft shared pictures from Quilt Market (watch for her new fabric line for Michael Miller in early 2011!) and we ended with a show and tell of first quilts and last quilts. Old or new, every quilt really does have a story to tell! The meeting went a little long, and then Violet and I stood out on the sidewalk long after PNCA had closed and locked its doors and talked and talked. It was 11:25 p.m. by the time I got to my car!. Now that's an inspirational evening! I know several of you have been looking forward to details of our last Saturday Sewing Night at Modern Domestic and June meeting, so please visit the PMQG blog where I have shared all the details and posted lots of quilt photos.
A perfect evening of sewing at Modern Domestic.
Between preparing that presentation for PMQG and preparing a guest lecture for a class at Portland State University next week, I still haven't had much actual sewing time. This is about my only creative endeavor lately: making a mosaic for another Flickr swap I've joined -- the gathered clutch swap. It's been MANY years since I put in a zipper. I'm thinking the 70s!
If you'd like to make your own gathered clutch, Noodlehead has a tutorial here.
With wishes, true and kind -- Joan
