I spent a fantastic weekend in Columbus, Ohio, at the 30th Quilt & Surface Design Symposium (http://www.qsds.com/aboutqsds.html)! In spite of Friday night’s heavy rain it was a beautiful sunny weekend inside and out of the Columbus College of Art and Design. I took a 2-day workshop with Lisa Binkley (http://www.lisabinkley.com) which was stupendous! With Lisa’s gentle guidance and delicate insights we stitched and stitched and stitched……”In the Boro Spirit” is a workshop I recommend to anyone who loves repurposing AND handwork. I also participated in the annual QSDS exhibition, The Challenged Ones–our challenge was to embody red, yellow, green, and blue in 12″ square quilts. Thanks again to all who make QSDS happen–it is terrific!
