Quilt round up from Denver

Way behind with intended regular posting so I’ll try and catch up a little with a second batch of pics from the Denver trip. I was in the mile-high city to teach a 3day class for machine quilting supremo Harriet Hargrave with the delight of staying at her home included for good measure. As you can imagine, there were some seriously good vintage quilts to enjoy as well as a side trip to the quilt museum in Golden where there was an exhibit of old and new quilts featuring machine stitch. The “new” was represented by a selection of work from Sue Nickels and Pat Holly. I think you will enjoy some of the following –

I was rather taken with this porch as a potential stitching spot – shame the house was not for sale! (no, it’s not Harriet’s home).

So it’s back to domestic things for a few days and getting ready to travel to Scotland next week – more packing!
