And here is Carol Anne Grotrian talking to us about how to critique quilts.

The two quilts in the photo are both hers — two variations on the same idea, one more successful than the other.

During the Workshop, there was a team of women stretching all the Ruby Red Quilts onto canvases.  You can see my little owl on the table:

Most of the quilts had a red background, so I’m thinking my white-on-white background is going to pop in the big group of them.  I’m super excited to see them all together!

Last but not least, I mention “Bullet Journaling” in the podcast.  If you don’t know what that is, this a great article all about it: WTF is a Bullet Journal & Why Should You Start One?  An Explainer.

024: International Quilt Festival Houston

I’m delighted to bring you another episode of the Adventures in Arting Podcast!  Today we’re talking about my recent trip to International Quilt Festival Houston.  I’m sharing a bunch of photos of quilts, but I have to tell you: this is a fraction of what was there.  A fraction.

Oh, and there was a mirror by the elevator in the hotel.  I couldn’t help myself, it felt like home!  😉
