I don't know about you, but if there is one fabric manufacturer that always hits it out of the park with prints that are like art, it is Alexander Henry. I saw this bolt at the Stitchin' Post and it was a WOW moment. Sometimes you just stand there with the 'ol brain in overdrive trying to decide if you need a dress instead of a quilt made out of the fabric. Has anyone else succumbed to this bolt of fabric??? And, what did you create?
Due to inclement weather...you know...those big white things that fall out of the sky and bury half a car...I was not able to attend the First Friday Quilt Gallery Show at QuiltWorks in Bend. But Marilyn, the owner, keeps the show up for a full month and so when the sun came out and the snow receded I headed over and took in the show. I wanted to share the Featured Quilter's exhibit. This month's featured quilter is a long standing quilter, teacher, and artist in Central Oregon, Jackie Erickson. She has taught at the Quilter's Affair in Sisters for several years. About three years ago I took her Wonky Log Cabin class and it was nothing but a great time! She has a way when it comes to deciding how to put her blocks together to create a one of kind design. Enjoy the show, and if you make it to the Quilter's Affair in Sisters, consider taking a class with Jackie!
