Great day for MARQ
Today was the MARQ reception at the WI Museum of Quilts & Fiber Arts. Wonderful reception and the exhibit was very well received. Thanks Dad for the photo!
I have spent most of my new found "spare" time in the studio the past few weeks..that is....when I haven't been working! Actually, I have spent more time in the studio in the last few weeks than I have the last few months..it has been delightful!
It has been a long time since I regularly contributed to this blog..the Museum being the main reason.....
Here a sneak at the interior of the new Museum.you can imagine all the wonderful places for exhibiting large quilts.
Here's exciting news you can rent the barn and classrooms for events as well! If you want more information you can go to the website or contact the Facility Rental Coordinator, Ellie De Lia at firstname.lastname@example.org
Well, it has been over a year since I posted..I was a bit busy with the WI Museum of Quilts & Fiber Arts in Cedarburg WI. I have spent the last 18 months or so building the Museum and getting it open. My "term" came to an end with the New Year and I am back to creating and sewing! It has been a long drought of creativity for me and I am looking forward to getting my hands on all the fabrics and designs I have collected in the past two years.
That doesn't mean I didn't sit on my hands! The picture you see here is the latest pattern available through BBD Creations...we debuted this large wall quilt at the Houston Show this past October.
"Ram-ifications" is 36 x 36" made of wool and copper cottons. Bonnie's original design is spectacular and the quilt is too! It is a wool applique...all by machine...a large project but can be done in a long weekend or over a few weeks for busy quilters. He looks like he has a lot of 'tude, doesn't he?
This February I head off to Bonnie's studio for a design think tank..we have several quilts in the works for BBD and a few just for competition this year. I will post as I finish them.
As I have said so many times before...stay tuned a lot of new "stuff" is coming this year!
I haven't posted to this account in a long time..trying to keep up with three email accounts for various activities and a new web page for the WI Museum of Quilts and Fiber Arts, facebook and LinkedIn, too..
OH MY I HAVE BEEN BUSY!
