Yup, that's Freddy Moran!
She came to the Seattle area and taught a weekend workshop at Aunt Mary's Quilt Shop.
Here she is showing one of her new works inspired by quilts in the book below.
Published by Quiltmania.
She also brought these beautiful collages, inspired by Edrica Huws.
Stephanie took Freddy's collage class in Sisters, OR, last year. Here she is with her fabulous creation.
Freddy showed us how she makes her collages, starting with a pieced black and white background.
Starting with a pile of scraps, she cuts and glues on pieces with a washable glue stick.
She made this piece in less than an hour.
Once she gets everything glued on, she sends it to her long arm quilter for stitching.
I brought my lone star to work on.
Freddy made some beautiful suggestions for setting fabrics.
In the end, I decided on this. Freddy's advice really helped my selection.
She said, "It's already wild. Keep it going! Don't think you need to calm it down."
She also said I should use a different scale print.
Stephanie coordinated the event, and did a lovely job of it.
She even made these gifts for us,
all with her collection of out-of-print Freddy fabric!
Thank you, Stephanie!!!
