I am very pleased to have been invited to be in a dual show at the National Quilt Museum in Paducah, KY with Denyse Schmidt. Denyse is the leader of the Modern Quilt movement and has created a diverse life for herself in quilting. The show is titled Two Approaches: Now and the Future of Quilting. Denyse is teaching an in-depth, two day version of her Pure Improv workshop on October 18-19 at the Museum and I have already made plans to be in Paducah at that same time to meet Denyse and see the Show. Maybe you’ll be in her class and I can meet you,too!
I hope that many of you will be able to attend this event between October 11, 2013 and January 14, 2014. Besides the obvious contrasts in the styles of our work I see some similarities as well – especially our shared belief that enjoyment of the process is a major part of quilting.
