I was priviledged to be the featured speaker for the Decatur Quilt Festival recently. It was sponsored by the Decatur Quilters Guild. They held their show at the Decatur Civic Center. It was such a beautiful venue to showcase the 300 quilts that were on display.
They gave me space to display some of my own quilts.
In addition to lecturing, I had a blast teaching my Playful Portraits workshop. We had so much fun! Here are a few of the portraits that were made.
I also wanted to share the Viewers’ Choice / Best of Show quilt, called “Spring Shadows”, made by Joy Voltenburg. She also won first place in Appliqued quilts. Isn’t that nice machine quilting? Here is a close up. Very nice!
The only glitch in the whole weekend was the 12″ of snow that Decatur received during the weekend we were there. We had to cut our workshop short so people could still drive home safely. The next morning, sweet hubby faithfully dug out Li’l Bit so we were could get to our next engagement on time. And people wonder why I don’t want to travel alone!
Thank you, Linda, for hostessing us, and for everyone else who worked at organizing all this!
