I have two very special teaching engagements coming up...Asilomar next week and then just a few short days after getting home from there I go to Dubai to teach for their International Quilt Show!!! I can still hardly believe that they asked me and feel very honored to have been invited. Even though I'm going halfway around the world to teach, the only thing that really has me concerned is staying busy for 20+ hours of flight time each way. I go nuts if I'm not keeping my hands busy...so that's the incentive to get a lot of quilting done on this piece...I have enough hand work to keep me busy on this for a VERY long time!
Now here's a better shot so you can see what I'm doing! Love how the leaves came out in the oval...
...and a little bit closer. You can see little dots in between the leaves...this is where I will be adding silk ribbon French knots.
Here's a small closeup of the eeeetsie tiny little border design...I thought the dime would help you see how tiny the details are.
Classic Quilts, the sponsor of this show, is graciously loaning me a machine during my stay so I when I have some down time in my room I plan on getting more machine quilting done. I think I have plenty to keep me busy with no idle hands!
I've decided to name the quilt "Provence"...Inspired by French Quiltmaking in Provence, France. Their work is what inspired me early on to create heirloom style quilts.
So, this will be my last blog post for a bit but I promise I will be taking loads of pictures and taking notes and will have some fabulous posts coming up from Asilomar and Dubai.
Big Hugs, Cindy :)
