Wow, it's Valentines weekend and I just looked at the date of my last post. Slacker? Not really, I've just been very busy for the past few weeks. Plus I'm having issues with my iPhone talking to my Surface. I see pictures on the phone, but the Surface can't seem to find any after a specific date.
So 45 minutes later, the simple task of finding photos on my phone and moving them over to my pc has been completed and I can share a few things with you.
As usual, click to enlarge the photos. We had a fabulous guest speaker come to our guild this month, Geoff Hamada of Hamada Farms Quilts (link to his FB page) in Seattle, WA
His presentation was a combination of slides and samples, and he spoke about men quilter's through the years. It was SO interesting and some the slides had such amazing quilts.
Geoff does a lot of hand work and his beading and hand quilting is amazing. His choice of fabrics on these pieces is so far removed from what I would use; I think this is what intrigued me the most about these pieces.
The "other" group of work that Geoff showed was his Hawaiian quilting. He certainly has mastered those tiny tight curves and his hand quilting is terrific. I dream about stitches that are that even!
Who doesn't love a red/cream appliqued piece? I wanted to sneak this one out of his pile, Oh well, I guess I'll add it to my bucket list of quilts that I want to make.
Oh so traditional, the red/yellow combination.
OK, my pictures aren't that great, but I had to show them.
