A Visit to Birmingham

I recently visited the Birmingham Quilters Guild. As much as I have traveled, this was my first trip to Alabama – an extra perk: it was snowing when I left KC (and, yes, it was just a couple of weeks ago!). Birmingham was beautiful and the quilt guild was a delight. I love sitting through business meetings of different guilds and seeing what they are up to. In Birmingham, they are very busy!

I was there to talk about negative space and teach two workshops. I really just want to share a few photos of their work. I always forget to get a group shot, honestly, I’m lucky if I remember to take any pictures!

The first workshop was ‘Circles & Sticks’ where we covered insertion techniques and bias curves. The designs were diverse – it’s always fun to see what everyone comes up with!

The second workshop was Shattered 9-Patch. Some opted for the ombre effect, some went without. This is one of my favorite techniques.
