She’s So Cool – Her Name Should Be Heather Rocks

September 3, 2009 at 11:53 pm 10 comments

IMG_sloperquilt0001Nevermind my shiny face.  Can you see how geeked out I am?  Here I am in fabric design heaven with Heather Ross herself.  Oh, and what’s that behind us??  That’s my little ol’ quilt.   So that explains why I look like I’m just about to bust my buttons.  It does make me wonder what would happen to me if I ever were to meet Denyse Schmidt.  I might explode. 

Anyway, Heather gave a fabulous class on ‘skirts that work’ and we made patterns to make a skirt based on our own personal measurements.  It was a great learning experience.  Did I mention how nice Heather is??  I learned a lot and will now not be so intimidated to make clothing for myself. 

IMG_sloper zannie0001And apparantly, I’m passing all of this love for sewing and fabrics on to my daughter, Suzannah.  This is her first quilt block ever – she made it awhile ago, and we haven’t turned it into anything yet.  She says she wants it to be a small pillow.  Heather Ross made a big impression on Suzannah. 

Heather shared with us some of her sketchbook and what may be forthcoming.  Sorry, it’s very extremely secret so I cannot give any details.  Just be reassured that there will be more fabrics and more.  She is so talented.

So, that was my evening.  I’ll come down from my cloud in a couple of days.

    What a great event! It was wonderful for your daughter to get that kind of inspiration at her age!

    Your quilt looks terrific – so great that you got to work with her, and even better that you’re passing on your passion to your daughter.

    Oh, you lucky, lucky lady. Your quilt looks great, you look great, Heather looks great, and it is so wonderful to see your daughter sharing your love of fabrics/patchwork/quilting. My daughter made a couple of aprons this summer and I can’t believe how much that pleased me, and every time I make something, I think how pleased my mother would have been. I can’t eve imagine how it would feel to have a designer see something I had made with their fabrics! What a special moment for you!

    I’m glad I found your blog. You’re quilts are great and inspirational. Maybe you’ll do a second bee next year? :)

    I’m so glad I got to see your photo, Tina! You are just as sweet and pretty as I imagined you would be! How wonderful that you got to work with one of the designers you admire most. That has to be such a thrill! :-) Take care — Dianne B. in England
