This quilt by Sherry Reynolds, Reynolds Crossing, won Viewer's Choice award at the Rocky Mountain Quilt Festival. Isn't it lovely and what a wonderful setting for sampler blocks. Sherry has only been quilting for five years. Can you believe it?
I was asked by the show's webmaster to take photos of the general and guild(s) quilts. There were 4 or 5 guilds represented. I shot over 300 photos in the one hour I had on Saturday before class and in the one hour I had on Sunday before class. What a treat to be able to shoot unimpeded by people. I have a system: I shoot the quilt and then the placard with the quilter's information and quilt name. I have been doing this for years and it works wonderfully.
Now I need to run the photos through Photoshop to crop out the unwanted around the quilt and get them to the show coordinators. You will understand if I drop in and out won't you? Busy, busy.
Soon, I will post on the David Taylor workshop. I promise.
On a side note:
After shooting Sunday, by the time I got to class I was dripping wet because they had not turned on the air conditioning. My hair was plastered to my head and you could see where the straps of my backpack had been by the wetness of my tee shirt. So today, I had nine inches cut off of my hair. It is so much cooler. And cute! Why haven't I done this sooner? My hairdresser said that as I am getting older my hair is getting curly. Go figure.
