Lovin’ Laramie

May 11, 2011

QuiltEssentials, Laramie, WYWhat great fun we had in Laramie, Wyoming at QuiltEssentials!

Janice Pope and I traveled to Laramie to stay with our friend, Mary, and to teach a few classes. We were welcomed by a great group of ladies and had such fun. My free-motion quilting class was a joy, as always. It’s so great to see students realize what fun they can have with some new quilting designs.

During the class, Sherry Reynolds came by the shop to show one of her quilts. It was absolutely stunning! Sherry, an engineer in her former life, has only been quilting for about 5-6 years but has certainly mastered it in this short time. Keep an eye out for her, we’re sure to see her work often!

We attended a great Wearable Art exhibit at the University of Wyoming’s Art Museum. What inspiration to make me want to come home and make a new coat or jacket of my own!

This is called Bella Pavone by Alice Kay Arnett. Gorgeous pintucking!

And the Mirror Smiled Back by Sara Varca. Gotta love that wild lining!

A Clash of Unity by Jennifer Schneider. This gray and yellow is so “in” right now!

Meditation by Teresa Nealon. A wonderful classic style.

Those Who Sew in Tears Will Reap in Joy by Treva Sprout Ahrenholtz. This beautiful dress was started many years ago by Treva simply to make something creative and beautiful. Her description stated that she came back to it time and again as she was dealing with sadness in her life. She didn’t realize that someday she would have a real purpose for it and eventually was able to wear it herself as a wedding gown.
