The Space Between- Happenings!

"Hey Doll Face" article written by Jamie Fingal and Leslie Tucker Jenison - about getting your gal pals together to attend the International Quilt Festival in Houston.  One of the girls was doing the downward dog in front of Jayne Larson's quilt.

Dinner At Eight Artists have, well, Dinner At Eight in Houston!

Friday evening at the Houston Quilt festival we were so excited to gather in Spencer's restaurant for our artist-dinner.
Just in case you aren't sure whether we have a great time together at our D@8 gatherings, please observe the following:
Indigo Perez, Judy Coates Perez' daughter, took a lot of photos of our evening.
I promise that Jamie and I will add more as soon as we receive them.
For some reason, I didn't get a shot of the entire table.  
One of the unknown benefits of d@8 is you get to learn the fine art of "Spoonology". 
Barb Forrister (L) and Susan Fletcher King (with Judy & Indigo Perez)
practice their skills
Jamie sets her spoon up while Linda Teddlie Minton cracks up
There's a first time for everything - Terry Grant's first Festival and spoon experience!

some of us have other skills.  Who is this?
Why, it is Ms. Napkinhead*
There is more than one way to practice Spoonology.
Just ask Susan Brubaker Knapp!
Gerrie Congdon says, "Wow, Susan!  You have good spoonology skills!"

Houston Quilt Festival workshop, Friday, November 4, 2011 "Dreaming in Canvas: A Painted Quilt"

Friday's workshop was super-fun, and our students made gorgeous collaboratively painted canvases and then turned their sections into beautiful, unique quilts!  At the end of the day it was difficult to believe that these quilts originated from the same canvases.  Everyone had a unique take on the project.
Here are a few shots of the progression of the paintings, followed by the quilts:

we even picked up some monoprints on watercolor postcards!

beautiful, messy hands...

Houston Quilt Festival workshop, Thursday 11/3/11, "Playful Painting On Canvas"

Our students were so much fun!  Here are a few shots of the progression of their two canvases:

We sincerely enjoyed working with everyone in our class, and the cards and journal covers the students made were awesome!

Here is the collection of canvas-embellished postcards that were subsequently mailed to the students:

A "Funscription"

Many of you know that Jamie and I like to have fun wherever we go.  My motto, and I believe I can speak for my teaching partner, is, "Don't Postpone Joy".  With that in mind, I decided to dispense a few "prescriptions" at the International Quilt Festival in Houston this year:
These will be given to our workshop students.
We hope they will be filled with fun after our day-long workshop(s)!
