Twiglet, I couldn't get the link to work. :( But I agree with you about Yvonne Porcella - I found her inspirational too. If you look at my profile you can see a couple of faces I did after watching the show too! :D

Hope it's ok to resurrect an old thread. But Yvonne is totally inspiring, not only her work but also in the way she's faced illness.

I watched this show on a wet horrible afternoon a few weeks ago and then scribbled a drawing of myself and made a quick little quilt inspired by her and giggled the afternoon away. This is a link to it.

So I recommend watching this show and having a play. :D

I watched this show yesterday and agree it was wonderful, I just didn't want it to end. She is truly an inspiration to my quilting and also the way I live my life.

I have just returned from my family Christmas in Las Vegas and only this morning watched the "Quilting Legend" show. I am still sitting at the computer thinking this was the best show I have seen to date.....Yvonne Porcella is truly an inspiration to quilters. I love her attitude and grace with facing her cancer issues....thats the way to conquer this disease. Her style of quilting is free and easy and shows her spirit. Thank you TQS for bringing her to us this year. :D :D

WOW... I must say that this was my favorite show of 2010. Ms. Porcella was a delight to watch and get to know. I loved each and every part of the show and plan on watching it again and again. Thank you so much for introducing me to such an amazing, inspirational, and strong woman. She is indeed worthy of the title Quilting Legend and more.

A phenomenal, ahead of her time quilt great! Looking forward to her tribute. To find out about great quilters, when I see winners listed from major shows, I google them to see more of their work - there is never a "one hit wonder" LOL. A lot of great talent out there. I think Yvonne Porcella was more well-known through the 80's when she was truly a ground-breaker. Thanks for bringing her back to the spotlight!

JoJo, Join the club. I hadn't heard of her either. :shock: Makes me wonder what other great quilt artists I have been missing. :D

Well shoot, I must be living under a rock because I hadn't heard of Ms. Porcella until now. I love how TQS exposes me to all these quilting greats!
