What an amazing week!

Here's 11 year old Faith with her very first quilt! It's a Jelly Roll quilt, & she's going to enter it in a quilt show after she ties it with buttons. She was in the shop today, ready to start another quilt!
Here's Becky Rogers with her gorgeous landscapes. We're so lucky to have her in P'ville from Morro Bay for the class. What a lovely week we had with her.

Look at the beautiful work!

Not My Mother's Quilts Show Reception

Last Thursday we had a beautiful reception for the artists. The show is amazing. My photos aren't, so you really need to go see their work.
They have done some phenomenal pieces!
Here's a quick peek to give you an idea of what's in store. There are dimensionals, wearables, landscapes & just plain wild, imaginative works of fabric art.
