Staycation Part 2

Last night, I attended a lecture by the colourful designer, Kaffe Fassett at Bentley University in Waltham. He was sponsored by the Fabric Corner and Quilters Connection. He has several new books out including his latest quilting book, Kaffe Quilts Again and an autobiography, dreaming in color. He was introduced by Brandon Mably, who was very funny. They were both wearing shirts made with their own fabrics. Kaffe in a bold stripe, and Brandon in a green polka dot with a purple background. I had a great time with my friends from the Proper Bostonians. I bought a copy of his new quilting book for him to sign (I need another quilting book like I need a hole in my head or more fabric).


It was a great week for my staycation. Last Saturday, I met Angela Walters who does beautiful quilting for many modern quilters. She has a great book out now, Free Motion Quilting with Angela Walters and another on the way soon. She was at Quilters Way in Acton for a trunk show which I attended with my friend Lorri. Angela was sweet and funny telling the story of her quilting with many references to her husband Jeremy who was off to see the Red Sox play.
Here we are after her talk.
