I went to the Quilting Odyssey in Hershey PA this weekend and WOW, what a show! First I LOVE Hershey PA, but it is WAYYYYY expensive to go there (it is a resort town with the Hershey Waterpark, Museum etc. there). However, the quilt show itself was really cool - the quilts were beautiful and I took some REALLY cool classes from Sue Patten!
I actually had only heard of her before, but now I LOVE her! She is an artist/designer for quilting designs (not piecing designs, quilting designs). I took two longarm classes from her one was called Spines with Designs and ZenSuedling (: - I know right???
Spines with Designs was really cool - here is a sample (not mine : / )... These are good for sashings, borders etc.
It is all the rage to quilt absolutely every square millimeter of your quilt...called Zendoodling, Zentangling etc. I personally think it is very pretty, but maybe a little too much for the average quilter. However, I love to quilt, quilt, quilt without stopping, which is what it really is all about - so Yay!!!
In the ZenSuedling class we marked a quilt top, which is really just a hunk of VERY NICE black fabric. Here is mine before I quilt it...
I will be back in the studio tomorrow quilting, but for today it is time to spend time with little man... : D.
