Quilt Expo, Lyon, France, June 2006

My quilt, "Mama's Blue Period" has been travelling as part of the "I Remember Mama" exhibit. It was in Lyon, France for Quilt Expo in June. (Wish I coulda gone with it!) Eliane Lomax, who is in my critique group, Q&A Quilt Artists (www.quiltartists.com) took these pictures of the quilt in place in Lyon.

What's neat is that my other quilt, also in Lyon as part of the QuiltArt at 10 exhibit, is also visible in the first picture, just over the left shoulder of the man in the black shirt.

Thanks, Eliane! Posted by PicasaPosted by Picasa

Pam Heim Quilt from Tiny Boxes class at the Artful Quilter

Pam Heim is one of the students in the recent class I taught, based on my quilt Tiny Boxes, at the Artful Quilter (www.artfulquilter.com). She sent me these pictures. Wow, Pam, a lot done in less than a week! Pam promises a new picture once it's quilted.

The class uses a simple log cabin variation block, 5" square, to explore color in a main color and its compliment on the color wheel. Pam's interpretation is wonderful, in black and white with accents that range from red to yellow. So fun!

Two detail shots follow. I love the choices. Her black and whites include grays that are true gray and others that shade a bit brown, but they all work together so well. Those reds and yellow really pop.
