On Wednesday morning I packed up about 40 of my quilts in my rolling cart, and headed to North Vancouver to do a presentation and trunk show for the Seymour Quilters’ Guild.
The members of the guild seemed to enjoy my presentation and had lots of questions about my techniques and compliments about my work. And they have already posted a write-up about my trunk show with some great pictures (including the photo above).
Back in the quilt studio, I’ve been working on an entry for the latest Quilting Arts Magazine reader challenge ‘Birds of a Feather’. The theme reminded me of some photos from our vacation in the British Virgin Islands a few years ago. We were fascinated by the small terns hanging out on the beach. They have distinctive black caps, and they tend to all stand facing in the same direction – into the wind (except when we tried to take a picture of them, when some of them would invariably turn toward the camera).
I drew a stylized version of a tern and made 3 of them, each a slightly different size and with some variation in fabrics, and positioned them all facing the same direction. I’m just trying to decide on what fabric to use for the sea in the background. Any opinions? (Please excuse the creases in the fabrics.)
Thanks for stopping by. Today, I’m linking up with these blogs – click on the links below, where you’ll find many creative and inspirational projects.
