It may have been a grey, dreary cold day in Duluth but members of the Lake Superior Modern Quilt Guild grabbed their brightest quilts, bundled up, and gathered for a walkabout around Duluth's iconic Aerial Lift Bridge!
Check out the Duluth News Tribune article on the colorful walkabout: Duluth quilters strut stuff in Canal Park
Our weekend class started Friday night with a Trunk Show by Donalee Kennedy, an artist and quilter from Bayfield, Wisconsin. She shared her amazing pieces that she has created and talked about her studies with Nancy Crow.
After the Trunk Show it was our turn to start improv-ing with intent! Before sitting down at our machines Donalee covered design principles, and talked about color and contrast. Then she set us free to start working without printed patterns. Each person started cutting, sewing, standing back and looking, and kept going. It was a wonderful class that challenged everyone in different ways.
