Trunk Show by Victoria Findlay Wolfe

This past Friday, the Boston and Seacoast Modern Quilt Guilds enjoyed a trunk show by the lovely Victoria Findlay Wolfe.

Victoria gave a great presentation, talking about her life growing up on the farm and watching her grandmother quilt.

I love hearing about where quilters and artists get their inspiration from. It's amazing to hear how we all find inspiration from so many different places.

You might recognize this quilt from the cover of Victoria's book, 15 Minutes of Play.

I loved how Victoria talked about grandmother flower garden quilts. Who doesn't have a bunch of unfinished hexi's lying around, waiting to be made into a top.

I loved Victoria's attempt to use solids. I don't use a lot of orange in my quilts, but there's something about that orange in the center medallion that speaks to me.

And here I am with Victoria after the show, getting my book signed.
