Who loves going to quilty events?
💕💜💙💚💛❤️ I do! 🙋🏼♂️
Last night, I was lucky to get to attend one 😁 It featured the fabulous @sherrilynnwood and special guest @dsquilts doing an improv performance demo at @gothamquilts. The audience got to choose 6 fabrics and an improv style (we chose triangles & curves!) then sit back and watch these legendary talents make some magic. Boy do they know how to put on a show! You just had to be there to feel the amazing energy they radiated out to a fascinated crowd.
At the end, Sherri was even nice enough to give me some super sweet advice, when she overheard that I was writing my first quilting book.
Thank you gals for an awesome Saturday night, it was one for the books! And as always thank you to @gothamquilts for inviting them and hosting such a great event!
I've put a link to Sherri's amazing book - The Improv Handbook for Modern Quilters - in my stories, you should definitely check it out! Trust me, this lady knows her stuff and it is so worth a read - especially if you've ever been curious about improv quilting but don't know where to start. She's got such a great wealth of knowledge to share. If your in the NYC area, I believe there's still a few spots left in Sherri's Monday workshop with all the details at gothamquilts.com/events. And while you're there, be sure to check out the last of the summer classes before the fall schedule debuts in a few weeks. I'm teaching afternoon & evening social sewing on August 4th and a daytime or evening Intro to Patchwork class on August 7th - I'd love to see you there🕺🏼& of course here's a 📸 of 🐕 Diane Keaton on our first walk of the day!
Happy Sunday friends! xoxo 😀💕 #quilting #sewing #improvquilting #sherrilynnwood #denyseschmidt
