We do good things and we should be proud of them and not afraid to share. So, as a first step today I'm sharing that one of my students nominated me for the 2014 Quilt Teacher of the Year award that is sponsored by ICAP. The award is in its 28th year and I'm pretty proud and thrilled that one of my students took the time and made the effort to nominate me. The quality of my teaching and my students' experiences are important to me. I work hard and a I am always working to improve as a teacher. You would think after 30 years I'd have it down, but I can always be better. Thanks!
I also had a fun experience walking Bruno tonight. A guy on the street carrying his groceries stopped me and asked if I was the lady who made the quilts and he pointed to my studio. I said yes and he told me he and his wife walk by every morning and they were hoping they would run into me. He told me that my quilts were modern and elegant and that I did exceptional work. It made going out into that bone chilling cold a little bit easier. I especially loved the word elegant.
This is my newest quilt called Hidden Gem. It's my minimalist version of a sixty-degree triangle quilt. I photographed it at night so you may not be able to see that the triangles are white, gray and navy with the one little teal hidden gem.
As you can see, Bruno spent a little time breaking in this quilt. It passed the Bruno test, so it's all good.
