The week started with a workshop and lecture for Remembrance Quilt Guild in Springfield, Ohio. Really sweet ladies — thanks for your warm welcome! I had the opportunity to teach about color, and then I showed a PowerPoint presentation about the Lost Quilt Come Home website.
Once I got back home, I started on the next deadline. Next Friday, I’m going down to the International Quilt Festival in Cincinnati, and I’m going to be filming two short segments with Pokey Bolton for Quilting Arts TV.
I’ve been collecting all of the quilts and samples that I’ll be showing, and in the process I’ve been adding new samples. A couple days ago, I realized that I really wanted a few more specific colors of hand-dyed fabrics. I’m so thankful to Karen Davis of Ruby Mountain Dye Works! I had bought several packs from her in the past and I love how rich and beautiful the colors are — every piece I’ve bought from her has been simply luscious. I shot off a quick email to Karen. She searched her inventory, put together a special package of her fabulous hand-dyes, and immediately popped them in the mail. (Thank you, Karen!) I got them a couple hours ago, so now I’m off to put them to good use.
