Our Colorado adventure – Grand Junction workshop

posted in: Teaching | 5

The second day in Grand Junction I taught the “Making Faces,” fused appliqué portrait workshop at the hotel DH and I were staying at. Talk about convenient! There were twenty ladies in my workshop. I think everyone had a good time, and just look at these terrific portraits they made!

I’m always thankful sweet hubby comes along, because he distributes various materials and takes care of an assortment of details, plus he can carry all my stuff. This time he even walked around and answered some questions about the process and gave great advice. One lady suggested that since I made a portrait of him, he should make one of me. Sounds like fun! I know my daughters want to try it too, so maybe we’ll have to do a family portrait-making day.

As a side note, just in case you don’t know, I also have a second website called Lost Quilt Come Home! Sadly, I had to post more missing quilts last night. Please take a moment to visit the website and have a look at them. If you’re on Facebook, you can share the information with all your quilty friends, too.

      Email me and tell me what part of the country you’re in, and I’ll let you know if I have a workshop scheduled close by. If not, I’d be happy to come to your local quilt guild!
