Wow, what a weekend!
I've had the most wonderful weekend at the Norwgian Quilt Association yearly meeting in Hell. No, that's not a joke, the town's name is Hell. American quilter Katie Pasquini Masopust said no one would believe her when she told them she had been teaching in Hell...
I did a "fractured landscapes"class with Katie Pasquini Masopust, and she was just great. We had so much fun! I don't think you will se my "masterpiece" for a few months though, I barely got started...but I will keep working on it, and maybe in a year or so it will be done.
I also did two classes with Norwegian designer Anrè Wallenborg. He designs purses and handbags for the crown princess, and his handbags sell for big bucks. He was a great teacher, and I actually finished both the purse and the wallet.
I had two quilts in the members exhibition, "storm in Bali"
and a smaller piece I call "summer vacation"
I met so many really nice quilters, and it was fun to meet others that I've only "met" on the net before, like May Britt Nina and Anita
So thank you to all of you! I can't wait until next year...
Oh, and I did get to do some shopping.... I'll have to post about that later :)
