Here are the next couple of interviews from Empty Spools Seminar at Asilomar, in one show.
Below is Quilting Stash listener, Kathy Del Beccaro making tiny things:
Chicken a la King, Chicken in a Basket, and Freddy meets Sally Collins!
Kathy and her House quilt
Kathy’s quilt in progress
Penny, Kathy’s new friend, happily at work
And now, Freddy and Gwen, sporting my favorite color…
Gwen and Freddy’s class, there were 40 students in all
And now, here’s the answer as to why Freddy is wearing my Mom’s hat:
I brought this faboo hat that was my Mom’s to Asilomar to use as my Muse when I got “quilter’s block” and modeled the hat when I gave the keynote lecture. I really do use this hat to help me get back on my creative footing. Freddy loved it — all pink and mostly red, her favorite color also. I walked in to Merrill Hall the morning after my keynote to find Freddy wearing my Mom’s hat and posing for pictures. The hat was perfect for Freddy and she wore it all morning while she was teaching. I wore it several times during the week while I worked on my new coat…
Here is a sampling of students’ quilts from Gwen and Freddy’s class:
I love these quilts and it was so fun to see what all of the students made in Gwen and Freddy’s class and be able to be a fly on the wall, being in the same building, while they taught. It was a great week!
