It is always amazing to me, how many creative things we can do with color and fabric. Just when I think I've seen the boundaries stretched as far as possible on what can be called a quilt, I go to a show and see someone's work that just blows me away.
However, in addition to making quilts from colorful fabric, there are lots of other people who are sewing fashion-forward garments, fantasy and period costumes, creative crafts, curtains, pillows, table-toppings, stuffed toys, textile origami, fiberart postcards, and even glorious kites from fabric!
I was going through my photos from my trip to Washington DC in March, because I am flying there again this Thursday. We were there during the Kite Festival on the National Mall, and of course I had to take photos of the many huge detailed kites that were in the air between the White House and the Capitol Building.
Here was my favorite: a long dragon flanked by a fish and a butterfly.
I'll mention one more time that I am a presenter for 2 sessions this Saturday, at the Not Fade Away quilt conference near Dulles Airport. (If you go, please come up and say hello!) I am doing a Power Point on Social Media for Quilters, and I also get to interview Jinny Beyer!
Then I'll be in NYC early next week, working with Andover on the SAQA fundraiser collection. The semi-finalists have all been notified, and we'll put the designs into a color-coordinated collection over a couple days of work sessions.
I'll be hitting several museums, and seeing a couple Broadway musicals. Can't wait to see the costumes in Kinky Boots! As always, looking at the world from the viewpoint of color and textiles...
