Yes, wonderful ...... spending the day in Shreveport with the quilters in the Red River Quilt Guild. My early afternoon and night programs to them was all about improvisational quilt making .... where I get my inspiration, where I buy fabric, what fabric I put into those improv quilts, and then a trunk show and talk about each quilt in the trunk that I trucked over with me for the programs.
I talked about my grandmother's influence on how I make quilts.
I talked about how, for years, I hid my quilts away, hiding myself from the inevitable not so enduring comments my quilts evoke in some critics of the not so ordinary.
I talked about my love for the utility style quilts that can be made with wool and linen, rayon and silk mixed right in there with that quilters' cotton.
I talked about how I don't use the color wheel as a color guide and how I had to shed all those preconceived ideas and learned knowledge about how a quilt should be constructed and how it should look.
