|Waiting for the lecture to begin|
It's an information packed lecture showing a series of quilts from start to finish, how I pull together a concept with imagery to create a design, products that I prefer and why, funny (but not so much at the time) stories about mishaps and problems I ran into and how I resolved them.
After the lecture, I always bring out Primordial Sea since a large portion of the lecture is about making this quilt.

I have two quilts in the book and exhibits that were made during my years living in Austin, TX. This is where I first became friends with Frances, Kathy and Sherry, we were all part of the same art quilt group and created a significant series of group quilts with a number of group members, exploring various themes based on color studies to begin with and eventually incorporating a variety of subject matter.
