The last time I posted on my blog I was vendoring on Mackinaw Island at the Annual Needlework Seminar. One of their guest teacher's was David Taylor. His art quilts are absolutely stunning pieces of work. There is quite a process he goes through to create them and I had the opportunity to peak in regularly on his three day workshop that took the ladies' from their photo to their fabric.
Each student begins with a colored photo that is pre-approved by David prior to the workshop. He then has you sketch out your photo using lines for movement and shadowing. Eventually you get to start placing fabrics using a WIDE variety of colors and textures.
David will be back at The Grand Hotel on Mackinaw Island in May of 2015 to present another series of workshops. You can bet that I will be checking into that!! I'm thinking one of my llamas or cows...........
Welcome to our new website. We hope that you will find this site to be more informational than our previous website. I will be keeping this updated myself which I think will be more time efficient.
I am currently on Mackinaw Island at the Annual Spring Needlework Seminar. I spent four wonderful days sharing a vendor space with Sue Spargo and her helper, Cathy. Sue is so "over the top" inspiring!!
We are staying at the Grand Hotel and are being "spoiled to death". I have been blessed to spend the last five evenings sharing time and fabulous dinners with Kim Diehl, Sue Spargo, and Cathy Palmer., along with many new quilting friends that we have met over the weekend.
We have selected dates for Sue Spargo and Kim Diehl to spend some time with us at Cousin's Quilt Shop. The dates selected are not at the same time, but are both in the 2013 calendar year. As soon as our contracts are in place, I will share with you the dates. Both designer's are doing some fabulous new projects and I have been fortunate enough to get a "sneak peek"!!
