One of the great things about Block Party in Portland was that I got a chance to sit through other quilter’s lectures and just be AUDIENCE!
That doesn’t happen very often, and I wish it happened more.
I loved Jo Morton’s presentation --- she is sharp, funny, engaging and so down to earth.
Her quilts speak to me, bringing comfort ---fabrics and colors and textures I can relate to as a “traditional” quilter ---and yet they are so out of “MY” box ---it’s just so nice to experience what makes another quilter tick.
I took as many photos as I could from my spot --- they aren’t all great, but they are all LIVE and in person, and being that up close and personal to Jo’s quilts was a thrill for me!
I hope you enjoy the slide show. As ALWAYS – if it doesn’t work for you now, it will always work later in the day or tomorrow – because I think we overload the servers trying to see them all at once. So just be patient and come back if it isn’t working for you, and is working for others. Just smile, walk away –and come back later.
You will also recognize the faces and smiles of other designers, Quiltmaker Mag and Creative Crafts Group staff parading around as Jo’s “Holders & Folders!”
((It’s not often we get to play THAT roll either! We had a great time!))
Today is a “Desk Day” for me as I catch up with emails and replies and mail order after being gone since last Tuesday. However – I’m still in my jammies, my music is playing, and I have my favorite mug of tea by my side to ease into the work day!
Let’s hope there is some sewing time by the end of it!
