I can't tell you how lucky I feel that I get to teach all over the world! I wanted to share with you a wonderful inspiration of an architectural design I saw in a mosque in Turkey a few years back when I was invited to teach by the Turkish Minister of Culture to represent America at their first Quilt Show there. Lo and behold, at this Turkish Quilt Show was a beautiful applique quilt that was framed. It was the same design that I saw. I love when quilters are inspired by what they see and then interpret them into a quilt. This is what lead me to further investigate what other quilters do when they see something amazing on a trip, or what is in their own towns or countries. It took me a long time to contact quilters around the world and put together a digital lecture to present to quilt guilds and shows. I knew right away that I had to name it "A Quilted Journey Around the World".
Keep tuned to my blog to see more of these great inspirations and their quilts right here. Better yet, subscribe to this blog or click on the words "Follow this blog" on the right hand side. I truly do love sharing what I see and learn!!
Of course I told mom to post an updated picture of me since I am growing so fast. Mom wishes there was something she could give me to make me stay small, but I like my din-din ALOT and it is making me into a fully fledged true bonafided Corgi...ya know, long with little legs. My new game I play in the house when it's snowing a real lot outside is to "herd" the coffee table. I now can run really fast around it 18 times. It's no flock of sheep, or cows, but it's the biggest thing around the living room. Did you know Corgi's herd? Yep, and I love herding the little kids that come off the school bus to say hi to me. They think I'm funny! Mom tells me I'm funny all the time! :-)
