Spent with like-minded, impassioned people. Those who love to work with color, fabric and stitches…
I worked with my Running with Scissors group, a day of picking Kat’s brain, and being inspired by her creative mind. She has made a series of art quilts called “Secret Life Quilts”. They ooze with the sensibilities, personality and humor of my friend, Kat. I have a smile from the heart when I see these quilts. I think the group felt the same and wanted to have a go at trying out Kat’s idea. So we all made our own Secret Life quilt.
Many many piles of fabric, all willing to share what they had:
Took and Ruth working away:
Jane’s black cat quilt was my absolute favorite:
There’s Leann….undoubtedly cooking up some trouble….with Barb out of the photo, but you can see her shark jumping out of the water:
Well, maybe Johanna’s pipe smoking dog is my favorite:
And here is my lady, who has a hibiscus in her hair and is ready to fly away from snow, and winter, and ice for sandy beaches and palm trees…..
Thank you Kat, I have learned so much from you…today and every other day, you are a light!. And RWS friends…you are all wonderful, creative friends and inspirations!
