Art Quilt Tahoe

This past November, I attended Art Quilt Tahoe for the second time. We all arrived right after a big snow storm, but it was blue skies the whole week; it was the best of both worlds. 

Valerie Goodwin is a very gifted teacher, and I highly recommend her workshop. 

I really enjoy going up Hwy 395 to Lake Tahoe. The entire drive is scenic, and it's something I look forward to. 

This year the weather was beautiful every day, what a treat! 

Velda Newman lives in the Lake Tahoe area, and usually teaches a workshop here each year. She brough her masterpiece to share with us. I went to see this amazing quilt when it was on display at Visions last year. 

Valerie's workshop was a lot of fun, and she is an amazing teacher. The map I chose to work with is Downtown Vienna. 

Before we started on our larger pieces, we did a few small studies just to get the techniques down. This is about 5 x 7. 

I'll be overlaying my streets over this foundation. 

I was very fortunate to be able to purchase one of Valerie's small studies. I love it, and it's the first thing you see as you enter my studio.
