One of the benefits of going to QSDS is the bus trip. This year being a Quilt National year we went to Athens. What can I say, always work that makes you want to work harder to be better. Some work that puzzles you, some that makes you think a little deeper and some that makes you laugh and remember to enjoy life. Even more fun when you know the artist.
The other show we saw was Ohio Designer Craftsman Best of 2015 at the Ohio Crafts Museum. And here I got to be the artist. As always the placement was great, the rocking chair is a piece by Christopher M Krauskopf of Kentucky. Lots of variety in this show with ceramics, furniture, fiber, metal, etc. This piece was my Quilt National reject, but it fit perfectly here!

Anyway, I spent last week immortalizing that beautiful, bad horse in fabric. Here he is before the background was completed. I spent 7 days at Quilt Surface Design Symposium in a master class with Rosalie Dace, as always a wonderful class with 17 like minded people. Several had breakthroughs with their work and it was awesome to watch the progress happen. There is something about being together in a creative atmosphere and QSDS is one of the best places for experiencing it. Signups for next year are in progress at qsds.com.
PS Kevin made some beautiful pieces which we all can't wait to see quilted.
