Allowing our beautiful grandchildren to fill the void
Not feeling guilty when true joy comes although fleeting
The creative spark waxing like the moon, expressing inside emotions
Learning how to take care of ourselves and help others

IQA quilt show review by Kathy Schmidt

Show in review
by quirksltd

Had a last minute opportunity to hop on a bus and head for Chicago to see the IQA Show. I’m not one to miss a chance like that, so off I went.
The red and white quilt display was spectacular! The selection of quilts from the “500” was also wonderful. Loved visiting the vendors and the Open Studios demos were great to have. But my heart was taken by the SAQA exhibits. I took some pictures–yes, I remembered to take my camera!
This is what I will remember from the 2015 IQA Chicago show——–

Look what happens when you take down the old shades (never throw them away)

Pulling down the shades in my daughters old room, I looked at the fibers closely and thought “What if?”


So I poured on the soda ash and sprinkled on the dye.


I took it all apart ripped out the threads holding them together and voila!


Does this say grass to you? Does anyone know what kind of fiber this might be?
