Kathy Doughty will be presenting in just one week (Wednesday September 29th 2021).. have you got your ticket yet? Her workshop is in two weeks (Wednesday October 6th 2021), and a few spaces remain. We expect to sell out after her talk, so don’t wait! Tickets here.
Kathy lives and works in Australia, and we are thrilled to host her here on quiltTalk. She creates bold, original designs using her own unique pattern lines, which feature plants and animals specific to Australia. Check out this cool cushion kit, sold through her shop. I can’t wait to see her latest projects.. drooling already!
In October (Wednesday October 13th 2021) we also will be featuring Karla Overland of Cherrywood Fabrics. This hand-dyed fabric is fabulous.. feels like suede, doesn’t fray, truly gorgeous colours. https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/karla-overland-aka-cherrywood-fabrics-tickets-167349862945 You might even win some!
A few years ago Karla started an amazing series of challenges. She puts together a collection of 4-6 fabrics, and challenges you to be creative. All quilts are limited to the same size, colour palette, and theme- from Van Gogh to Diana. It is truly amazing how much variety and breathtaking beauty erupts! This has been so hugely popular that she has several travelling shows circulating every year.
I was the principal organizer of Quilts at the Creek, an outdoor quilt show that ran for 8 years in Toronto, and was thrilled to bring one of Karla’s series of Prince quilts to the show. They were spectacular! And I have one other connection with Cherrywood fabrics… I designed a quilt for them, which is now available through her website as a pattern or as a kit. Check it out.. so proud!
Last but definitely not least, I will be opening up registration for Anna Maria Horner’s presentation (scheduled for November 19th 2021) in a day or two.. so check it out.
