Two Beautiful Souls

Monday was a really special day. I spent the morning and afternoon in a workshop taught by these lovely ladies

Teresa Sherling and Barbara McCraw make up B&T Studios in Denton, Texas. We spent the day learning to make dimensional flowers like these

to ultimately make this

Kansas wallhanging designed specially for our workshop.

We had so much fun.  Teresa and Barb's style of teaching is relaxed, fun and effective. 

And the day just got better.   Both of these gals are Master Quilters.  Barbara has had quilts juried into both U.S. and international shows and has received numerous awards and accolades for her artistic quilts.  Teresa is also an award winning quilter.  Visit both of their websites to learn more about them and see examples of their amazing work.

Of course I took pictures and with their permission I will share those with you.  But first let me tell you how very much I enjoyed spending the day with these two quilters. The title of their trunk show was "Two Visions, One Soul". I've met a lot of really nice people since I took up this quilting obsession.  But I doubt I have ever met more talented, funny, sweet and gracious ladies.  It is so obvious that they love each other and love working together.  When they first met they soon realized that while they had each made many of the same quilts or quilt patterns, they each had a different approach when it came to both color choices and process.  Their trunk show showed these contrasts.  I will never forget how these two ladies touched my heart and I can't recommend them too highly for your guild.

As has been the case lately..I'm not up to fighting Blogger's whims  so I'll just give a link to my Photobucket slideshow of their beautiful quilts.
