For my friends in Michigan I will be speaking at the Capital City Quilt Guild ( http://www.capitolcityquiltguild.org/index.php ) in Lansing MI on June 20th at 7pm , And at the Evening Star Quilt Guild (http://eveningstarquilters.blogspot.com/ )In Davidson MI on July 31 At 6:30. Check the links for details Here is the description
“Tim is a hand quilter and floral designer from Lansing who specializes in adopting older quilt tops that need “loving attention,” performs whatever remedy is needed, and hand quilts to perfection! “
I hope to see some of you there!
I have added some of the trapunto to the center of the whole cloth quilt….I hope you can see the difference in these before and after pictures.
these pictures show the before and after (and also show how lighting changes color!) the darker pictures are before adding the trapunto and the lighter pictures are after adding about half (click to enlarge)
Floral design classes will be starting up again soon so its time to advertize my classes.
here is the link to what I am offering so far
Today I am getting ready to do a Lecture/Trunk Show at the Thornapple River Rippers Quilt Guild
It always amazes me how much room 15 or 20 quilts take up! And how much they weigh!!
The quilts for the show come from these in the quilt gallery Click here
I have never liked to have my picture taken. I can’t ever seem to not make a weird face! I thought that it would make a difference if someone took a candid shot…It might be a picture that represents me better.
Sometimes people will send me pictures when I do a program or a class. This is me doing a presentation about vintage quilts tops/quilts
I don’t look too goofy….but wait there is more
A student in one of my floral design classes sent me some pictures
Here I am demonstrating a hand-tied bouquet
I love to teach and I get very involved in the flowers
Here is a comparison between 2 different construction methods.
Sometimes I get so involved that I make some pretty funny faces
I guess the candid shots are not always the most flattering either! Mostly just goofy!! But fun!
Sometimes they aren’t as bad as others…but I think overall I still don’t like to have my picture taken.
My next floral design class starts tonight….I wonder if anyone has a camera?
