Last week was a wonderful week for me! I invited people I know to an open house to see the quilts I have made recently. My friend, Teresa D., hung them with me. We worked HARD getting this ready. We put up 11 quilts .
Since several people are not quilters, I also created several steps demonstrating how a quilt is made, using projects that are “in the works” laid out on different small tables. Over two afternoons, about 45 people came by to take a look and offer opinions and encouragement. Voted most popular quilt was “Crazy Cats”, a whimsical paper-pieced wall hanging I completed summer of 2013.
The house looks wonderful with these creations warming the walls. Teresa is also the friend who loaned me her machine when my Pfaff broke. I continue to borrow her machine until May, when I am taking the Pfaff to the US to be cleaned and repaired. I have not found a trained technician here to work on a Pfaff. Living in Cuenca has a couple of downsides. A trained Pfaff technician is a hard thing to find in Ecuador!
Here are some photos of the quilts hanging in the home I share with my wonderful husband, Lenny. Life is good!
