Since I print on fabric I feel this blog is an appropriate place to tell about my show.
In 2010 the president of Birmingham Quilters Guild Pat Lovelady
was instrumental in getting the fabulous Ginny Eckley to conduct a workshop here in Birmingham.
This got me started screen printing and I still get my screens from Ginny.
In fact two pictures in my show, 'the Ranch' and 'Geisha' were inspired by Ginny's own pictures.
Thanks to family and friends my reception was more than nice.
And the library staff members were really great.
And my baby granddaughter got a new friend, three weeks her junior.

Here is the quilt I spent two weeks in January making
We chose yellow flowers.
I tried to make it authentic,
like the old quilt I copied.
and reds. Making it was great fun.
which I chose to perfect
the old one has 30. Makes a difference.
well, whoever made this quilt, was that daring.
Then I would make another copy with all 30 squares.
And here is one of the old quilt's corners

|My Allsorts candy quilt. I wanted a print out, but.....|
|pressed the BLACK button on the printer and got ... lots of shades of gray!!|
|That became the start of a twin bed quilt,|
which now is on its way across the ocean for a favorite niece.
|Kathy Joiner quilted it for me and....|
|did exactly, what I had asked - and more. I wanted the quilting|
in white on the black backing, so the quilt could be turned.
|This photo shows it better.|
I am very pleased with this quilt.
