Just a reminder to all you Australian folks…..Jinny Beyer will be in Ulladulla on March 18, 2013 – sponsored by Marilyn’s Patchwork and Crafts. You can reach Marilyn at 02 4455 4229 for all the details. Tell her the American sent you! 🙂
It’s $55 for the lecture and it includes a light lunch. Her talk is on Colour Confidence. She will be available for book signings after her lecture and her books and fabrics will also be available on the day.
I went to one of Jinny’s talks about a bazillion years ago in South Dakota and it was great so I can only expect that 15-20 years later she would be FABULOUS! I am always gobsmacked at her color combinations. When we were in Washington DC last year I SO wanted to get to her studio but time and logistics just weren’t in my favor.
If there’s any way possible to make it – I think it would be worth your time. (And no…..I’m not getting a cut from Marilyn for saying this. I just think it’s important to invest in the things that we love and the things that feed our passions.)
I just visited her page to make sure the above link worked and look what I found……
WOW! It’s her 2013 BOM quilt. I might need to break my new rule of not following anyone else’s patterns and think about making this one. I’m gobsmacked. I absolutely adore this quilt. It’s right up there with her MoonGlow quilt in my eyes. Although I had the kit for moonglow – I never made it.
Maybe it doesn’t matter if I have a practical ‘use’ for quilts – maybe I’m just meant to make quilts – just because. Something to ponder.
