My Newest Quilt is Called "Rays."

While I was in California, I made a class sample for the workshop I will teach at the Quilt Patch in Fairfax, VA this fall. The class is about using value to bring light and transparancies into quilt design. I pieced this entirely with fusible. The only sewing was the machine quilting and the facing for finishing. The pieces are finished as separate quilts and then are attached together using small tabs.

I'm back from California

I have just returned from an amazing 5 weeks at our summer home on the central coast of California. Here is a picture of our home taken by my nephew from the air. I could spend hours everyday down on the rocks over looking the water watching for otter, seals, star fish, crabs, dolphins and even whales.
