Recent Happenings and a Quilt Along Link up


For quite some time now I have been preparing to do a trunk show/lecture at the Wisconsin Museum of Quilts and Fiber Arts. No, I did not mention it before, but it has been on my radar for quite some time. This last weekend, on Friday and Saturday to be exact, they had their Spring University Days. This is a fundraising event for this wonderful facility. Each day they have a keynote speaker, and then classes in varying areas of interest. So inspiring! I am hoping to participate more fully in the future.

I arrived early at the museum with all my goods, well almost… forgot the laptop cord, but was quite fortunately rescued by Luanne and my husband on that front. Grateful I am! First thing in the morning was keynote speaker Kim LapacekĀ from Persimon Dreams. We got to hear about, and see her vast array of amazing quilts. She has a fun approach to quilts and certainly loves a challenge! She goes in full speed ahead to the quilting process, and creates amazing works that are truly her. Energetic, fun and colorful!

Kim has numerous challenges and quilt-a-longs on her blog, and for the first time ever (on this blog), we are linked to her Salt Lake City Quilt A Long Block!

Here is my somewhat scrappy block. Scrappy in the way that, these are fabrics that are out, and am currently using them on another project.

Have a great weekend!
