Nothing bolsters my spirits like writing about, reading about and touching fabric. I find I'm having trouble concentrating today. My thoughts are with my sister in the ICU in Minneapolis, but I'm here and feel pretty helpless. So I went to the web site for my favorite quilt shop and looked at upcoming classes. The pillow here is a class taught by Rami Kim. She uses a Korean method for folding fabric to make quilts, wearable art and pillows three dimensional. This pillow is just plain beautiful plus I want to learn these folding methods. So March 14th I will be in class with her for six hours and make this pillow.
I'm an Aquarius who was raised a Roman Catholic in Minnesota. I've managed to overcome the religion and the state. I've lived in California for 40 years. I retired in 2007 and became a quilter and appliquer. Never thought I would find the medium that would let me express my artistic feelings. I love vivid color. In addition, I'm a locavore, foraging for food to keep my husband and me healthy and to help local farmers. I live in Northern California on five acres.
