Come Join Me In Houston at the International Quilt Festival!

I have two fun all-day workshops scheduled this fall at the International Quilt Festival in Houston, Texas, and I hope to see you in one or both of them!!
First, I will be co-teaching a rollicking workshop called "Painting With A Twist & Shout" along with Jamie Fingal.  This workshop is for anyone who loves the idea of painting is intimidated by the blank canvas.  We collaborate as a group to create amazing paintings on large pieces of unstretched canvas, and then we (gasp!) cut them up to make some very cool mixed media items in the afternoon.   You just won't believe how much fun it is!  This workshop is from 9-5 on Friday,  October 31st (wooooo, it's on Halloween!).  Workshop #512 on the schedule, which is now LIVE so you can enroll!Check out some of the images below:
Morning:  collaborative painting!

Afternoon:  create all sorts of cool things with your painted canvas sections!

Saturday Workshop:  "Fifty Shades of Groovy:  A Modern Quilting Workshop"!  This workshop (#719) runs on Saturday, November 1st, from 9-5.  We will construction a contemporary panel from your own set of fabric squares and a selection of gray solids.  Please see the workshop listed on the IQA Website for more information.  Most students leave the workshop with the panel constructed and we spend time discussing the use of negative space and placement of the constructed panel.  Students are amazed with their results and how different each participants' work turns out.  
Examples below:

this is a portion of the negative space surrounding the pieced "panel".

This quilting workshop is for any level of quilt maker.  The only prerequisite is to have a basic knowledge of using a sewing machine and rotary cutter.
