Here are just a few pictures from the event. Here is Ricky at the sewing machine, yes he really does sew his own quilts.
They had an area of samples and some of Ricky's design ideas on display which gave you a sense of the process he goes through in designing a quilt.
In addition there were lots of quilts on display, done by Ricky as well as others. What is interesting is that not only does Ricky do contemporary quilts but he also does traditional designs.
You also get to see the quilts up close and see the actual quilting. Ricky has some lovely quilting designs on his quilts. Yes he also quilts his own quilts.
So now I wish I had another week off so I can start trying out some of the new things that I learned. But it's off to work tomorrow and I still need to finish the orange quilt for the 75th birthday. I've got a few ideas brewing so stay tuned and once the 2nd 75th birthday quilt is finished (Cherish Nature), I'm thinking I'm going to tackle a Kaleidoscope quilt.
