Listening to Fabrics and Other Odd Behavior

That’s the title of my newest lecture and I’m very excited about it!  If you’ve been reading my blog for a awhile, you know that I DO exhibit some odd behaviors.

Things like cutting up quilts and putting them back together,

Urban Sprawl, an art quilt by Ellen Lindner.

Using unusual materials,

And changing the shape of the quilt.

It’s kinda funny, because when I started searching my quilts for signs of odd behavior there were lots of them!  (Of course, I’ve been quilting a long time, so there’s plenty of “normal” stuff too.)

I’ll be presenting this lecture for the first time next week.  If you live in western Florida, maybe you’d like to come.  I’ll be speaking at The Piecemakers Quilt Guild of Brandon, FL on Monday evening, September 11th.  Cost for visitors is $10.  (And if you come, please introduce yourself.)

    Sounds very interesting, and I know it will be! Just praying you don’t have bad hurricane Irma problems.

      Thanks, Martha. We got through it with no damage. Just a tree down and the power out for one day. We feel blessed!

    I have cut up quilts and reassembled. I have cut holes through a “traditional” quilt top, allowing unusual, very organic reverse applique shapes (creatures?) to emerge from behind. It’s much more fun than planning everything! Best of luck with your talk. It’s a great topic.

      Candace, this sounds like tons of fun! I’d love to see some of these pieces.
