Wednesday evening was guild night with our speaker being Cathy Kappius from northern Michigan. She brought three large suitcases full of quilts (which is always nice). You can see pictures of Cathy and the quilts she brought at our guild website. Cathy talked about color and being adventurous with our fabric choices for quilts. She believes there are no ugly fabrics, they just need to pair up with the correct fabric. The best tip I heard from Cathy was about magazine pages. She saves pages from any magazine that evokes a certain feeling in her or has unusual color combinations. These pages later inspire her when she is deciding on fabrics and colors.
While you're at our website, please take a look at the gorgeous raffle quilt for next spring. Isn't is a beauty?
I made three Western Michigan University pillowcases this week for my son, JJ and two of his friends. Pillowcases are a great way to use that special fabric you have to buy, but then don't know what to make with it. This fabric has the Bronco, WMU seal and the word Broncos on it.
