Local Talent

This is what my house looked like at 6:30 this morning.  We are getting a new roof and the guys start early to beat the heat.  We hired this company because they have this amazing contraption that they lift up to the roof for catching the old shingles as they are removed. Creativity takes many forms! 

And yes it was noisy.  So it was a perfect time to leave the house for a quilt guild meeting.  Last month, Terry Kramzar was our speaker.  Her talk, "Inspired By Adventure", focused on how her travels inspired her amazing quilts.  After her talk I was ready to pack my bags and head to the Grand Canyon.  You can see more of her amazing pieces at:

This month Sue Reno was our speaker.  She showed a bunch of ways that she transfers images to fabric.  Nature is a huge source of inspiration for her.

Sue is from Lancaster, PA.  She started documenting the renovation of an abandoned department store that was transformed into the Lancaster Convention Center.  You have been inside this building if you have been to the Lancaster AQS quilt show.  These photos became the topic of a series of quilts.  This is one of my favorites.  You can see more of her quilts at:
