|Quilt Basket Rendezvous by Alex Anderson|
|Smaller Batik Version of Quilt Basket Rendezvous for Workshop|
Also, since Bernina is providing machines for us to use in the workshop, I'm curious about which machines we'll be using -- and grateful that I don't have to pack up my beast of a 750 QE sewing machine to take to class. If any of you in the Charlotte area are going to be in the workshop with me tomorrow, please say hello!
Happy stitching, everyone!
I have to agree, the Kaffe version is so special. Sadly, Charlotte is a bit of a long drive. Ah well. Have fun!! :-)
She is the reason I started quilting. I'd watch Simply Quilts getting ready for work and kept thinking I could do that. And I did. I also was on an Alaskan cruise that she was teaching on (I was not on the cruise with the quilters though.) I would go up where she was teaching and listen in AND I rode in the elevator with her. My in-laws and husband did not understand how excited I was. She's a quilting star!
Have fun and I don't blame you about someone picking your fabrics. Can't wait for your post all about it.
How lucky you are. Have a great day and I hope you enjoy yourself
that quilt would look perfect in 1930's prints! I used to love Alex Anderson's show on HGTV, years ago she is the one that I went to for advice on how to quilt when I was teaching myself with no place near by and no one to show me other than books. I would watch her guest show techniques and think "so that is how you do that". I used to go to her web page now and then and leave her a note saying thanks for this and that technique and she was always send me an e mail back. Seems like such a nice person, I haven't gotten into her on line stuff though at the Quilt Show - I just do not watch much of the quilting on line for some reason. Have fun at your workshop -- which state are you in I have forgotten?
Lucky you! I agree totally about the fabric choices. I prefer Kaffe over batiks any day. 30s repos is also a good choice. You do have the right outlook; you are there to learn and meet a charming quilt star. You can make a basket quilt in your fabric choices at a later date. Look forward to your sharing the experience to the rest of us who are envious. Enjoy!
Bummer about the fabric selection (I wouldn't want anyone selecting my fabrics either) but yaaaaaa about being able to meet Alex. Enjoy the workshop!
I took a two day class with Alex years ago. One of the best teachers I have experienced.
Ok you have to give us the update! I learned to quilt using an Alex Anderson book (pre-Internet!) and I used to set my alarm clock so I could watch her show at 6:30am. I saw her at Quilt Festival last October but I didn't introduce myself. And I'd want the Kaffe or retro version, too!
Lol Alex Anderson lives in my area of the country and I have taken a class from her and seen her at various events and just around.
She is indeed a nice normal person and she does try to answer ever question you might have
My lol was you have Bonnie K Hunter over there on your side of the country and I'd love to have a class with her
C&T Publishing is in this area as are many well known people from the quilting community
I think it's like living in Beverly Hills/Hollywood and seeing well known people going about their daily lives but in the quilting community everyone is just so normal no airs and they are not mobbed by their fans/followers just acknowledged with a wave or smile
