Everything Redwork

This has been another fast and furious week. Last Wednesday I gave a lecture named, Past, Present and Future of Redwork. The lecture was in a small Wisconsin town by the name of Prairie Farm. It was a very pretty drive off of Hwy. 94. The route took me past some of the most beautiful heartland areas of Wisconsin. I drove past cows (of all colors), sheep, donkeys, deer and horses all through the hills and valleys of this country side. I felt very lost. What was a city girl doing in this part of the world? But, all of a sudden, there was Prairie Farm and the school I was to lecture at.

The quilt group I spoke to went by the name Hay River Quilters. There were about 30 to 40 women gathered for the lecture. They brought very nice show & tell. They listen intently to what I had to say about the 100 or so Redwork pieces I had bought. At the conclusion of the evening we all enjoyed yummy apple and pumpkin pie.

The star quilt pictured was made by Lillian T. one of the Hay River Quilters. The other picture is a close up of a Kate Greenaway design, "Children at the Stream" maker unknown.

I had a very nice time with the Hay River Quilters and hope to see them again, maybe at a future quilt show.

Sounds like you had a lot of fun. Makes me want to take that route next time I head into Wisconsin!
