News and Updates March 2017
Today I bring you to my page to send you elsewhere! I have all kinds of awesome quilty activity happening in various channels both virtual and real.
I did a webinar for the MQG! It’s called Planned and Unplanned, and it’s a lecture in which I describe, with visual aids, a method for thinking about improv and design. I talk about the relationships between the two and how to break down intimidation you may feel about improv in piecing. I’m very proud of how everything went, and I have heard from a few people that they found it inspiring. If it’s something you might want to check out and you’re an MQG member, you can find it here.
Have you heard about or watched Fresh Quilting yet? It’s a modern quilting TV show, and my quilt Flounce is in episode 2, shown a couple of times in the first four and half minutes. It’s a showcase for modern quilts hosted by Heather Grant, and I’m honored to have my quilt included.
Another huge honor for Flounce is that it is going to be a part of a modern quilt exhibit at the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles! I mean, seriously. Flounce has hung now in so many amazing places, including the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show (a tick off the bucket list), that to have it in a museum is just all kinds of mind blowing. I’ll update with more info on Facebook when I have it.
Last week I firmed up plans to teach two Trill workshops later this year for local guilds. I still have some availability in the fall, so if your group is interested in a class or a lecture, including Planned and Unplanned, reach out to me at melintheattic at gmail dot com.
On the social media channels, I am the Insta Intros host on the North Jersey MQG Instagram account for the week. I’m sharing peeks of what I’m working on and a little bit about myself, so check out @njmqg if you’re interested. I have a quilt in progress in almost every stage of the process, so there is much work to document and share.
