Forsyth Piecers and Quilters Guild had Jean Wells as a presenter this month. I had planned to attend the meeting and skip the workshop. But the more I looked at her website, the more I thought that I could not miss the opportunity to take a workshop from her. So I worked on Sunday and took Tuesday off. I am glad that I did!
Art quilts are probably nothing that I will do but the theory is interesting and it forces me out of my comfort zone. Jean had several quilts that I really liked but THIS one SPOKE to me.
After attending her workshop and looking at her books, I am definately looking at my environment in a different way. When I got to work on Wednesday, I had a wallpaper pop up that was red and white tulips with a yellow tulip dead in the center of the picture. I looked at the different tones of red, white, cream, yellow and green and imagined what a quilt would look like in those colors.
Even though I may never make a quilt like that, just thinking about it was not something that I would have done BEFORE her workshop. Thanks, Jean, for giving me the inspiration to look at things around me in a different light!
