San Diego Quilt Show!

Wild busy setting up my booth (Quilt Sales), with great helpers at the San Diego Quilt Show that will be open Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. We have over 129 quilts for sale… and one pillow! New and antique in most every style. We’ve already sold some quilts and we aren’t officially open!

We set up for two days before the show actually opens and as with every year I’m blown away by the fact that our membership is an all volunteer organization.

Set-up in progress

My Mister has helped with the show for years and this year he handled moving storage (with our son, who has also been sucked into the vortex for many years!) and driving the truck. It was a pretty big truck but looks tiny in the yet to be filled space!

On another subject – I’m happy to be scheduled to teach my leaf painting class once again at Visions Art Museum on October 5th… the perfect class to “fall” into!

I have much to post but making art keeps getting in the way!

More Painted Leaves

Back in June I had the pleasure of teaching my How to Paint Fabric Leaves class at Visions Art Museum .

The class was full, with fifteen willing participants, who surprised the heck out of me. They were so enthusiastic and by the end of the class were experimenting and coming up with their own original leaf designs.

Leaves in every color!

Besides the leaf earrings I was wearing… near the end of the class I shared several projects that began with the painted leaves. I’ll share more about those projects in future posts.

One of my favorite projects is beading the leaves and applying pin backs or magnets. Here are just a few works in progress… They’re additive!

I’m looking forward to teaching the class again as well as other leaf project classes. The online lesson for How to Paint Leaves on Fabric is at Curious.com.
