Today I've been putting together kits and dyeing some muslin for Make It University at the International Quilt Show in Rosemont, outside Chicago. Thought I'd take a quick snap to show you what I have in store. If you've never attended the IQF--try to make it some time. I go to the Chicago show for inspiration and great classes. I'll be taking a Pretty Purses class with Melanie Testa, then hanging out at the Quilting Arts/Cloth Paper Scissors booth doing virtual studios, two mini workshops and a book signing. If you want to make a poetry spool or a whimsical cartoon pin, come by the booth first thing (look for the giant sign that says Make It University--can't miss it!) and sign up for the class lottery. Lots of other great classes with Belinda Spiwak, Leilani Pierson and Pokey Bolton. NOT to be missed!
