Postcard and Quilt Exhibition

My poor friend Marion is having surgery this coming Wednesday for an aneurysm. This is her get well postcard, representing a 'recovery angel in the fast lane'.

Yesterday was Micheline's exhibit opening at the Greenwood Quiltery in Guelph. It was a very festive event, in part because her quilts are so bright and colourful. Artsy quilts, not bed quilts. The quilts look fabulous hung on the walls. Try and get out there to take a peek. Her exhibit is on until the end of July. Click on the link for the store hours, the gallery is upstairs.

She very kindly gave me credit as her longarm quilter. Following is an excerpt from the bio she drafted:
The technical skill of manipulating the Longarm machine is one aspect of Helen’s talent, the other being her sense of design and imagination with respect to ideas and suggestions for quilting patterns and thread colour. It’s fun to work with Helen; she has a knack for interpreting what you are trying to convey with a particular piece and accommodating to your vision and, if you are at a loss of where to go next, she is never short of ideas or suggestions. Helen has the knowledge and technology to mock up stitching patterns over photos of your quilt and email them to you where you can view various options and make decisions with confidence from your home (or office). Helen’s work is impeccable and her anticipated turnaround time for work completion is accurate.
That's almost enough to make me afraid of myself. ;-)
