Festival of Quilts

I am excited!  I have just booked to go to a 3 day Masterclass at the Festival of Quilts in Birmingham in August!  It is with Erika Carter and it is called Personal Imagery in Art Quilts.  I hadn’t come across Erika before but I googled her name and love her work!  It looks as though she is exhibiting at the FOQ as well as teaching.    Here is a page with lots of pictures of her work.

The kids will be at camp that week so instead of sitting at home moping I will be able to have an interesting time too… it looks as though it could be just what I need.  I feel as though I’ve got so many ideas but can’t pick on one of them to develop fully. 

It is on from the Tuesday to Thursday so I am going to make a week of it and book a hotel from the Monday night and spend Friday looking at the show.

Anyone else planning to be there?!

    Erika Carter is one of my quilt heroines and I had such a hard time choosing between her and Bob Adams. I hope we’ll get a chance to meet and swap notes on workshops!
