Do you ever wonder where quilters find their inspiration? I see quilts all around me! All summer there was no time to quilt, but boy, did I find inspiration!
The Lowel Quilt Festival was held last month. WOW! I love to see how other quilter's express their creativity. There were many traditional quilts, but even more really oustanding art quilts. The machine quilting techniques were truely insprational!
In a recent class with Deb Wendt, I finally got comfortable with my machine quilting. Here at Lowell, there were hundreds of examples of getting out of the box with quilting!
Look at those spirals!
The show was amazing. Seeing the work of Christine Fries Ureel in person was so inspriational. I am lucky enough to get to take a workshop with her at the end of this month. This workshop is offered by my quilt guild, Thimble Pleasures, in Mendon, MA. Thanks to Kathleen Murphy for setting up this workshop. Here is just a small sample of Christine's work.
I really need to get into my sewing room now, but I'll try to post some more inspirational photos on my blog tomorrow! Meanwhile, I'm adding a few new links to other quilters who inspire me! I hope you will enjoy each unique style. Until next time! Sue
