And of course there was shopping - everybody wanted a hand dyed fabric
Yes, yes, I do own this piece now. Beth seems to be giving her approval, and with her knowledge of dyed fabrics, how could I go wrong?
Well, naturally I have to find thread to go with it.
One of my favorites - all raw edges give such great texture - each little color spot is a separate piece of raw edged fabric. I love everything about this. This is in Ricky's private collection of purchased quilts.
Libby's ribbon quilt - just love the way the ribbons weave in and out of the pattern.
Libby's circle quilt. I have to try this technique.
Ricky is a classicaly trained pianist and musician. That was his first love and his first vocation. He treated us to a concert on Friday night, complete with slides and stories of his journey in music and quilting. It was positively awesome and inspiring. One of my best recent musical experiences. Here he is playing the pan flute with images of his home state, Colorado in the background.
