Our guild guest speaker was the very talented Mary Lou Weidman. She was so entertaining and inspiring!! I enjoyed her lecture and trunk show so much. I really wish I would have been able to take her workshops too, but it's just not a good time for me. At least not right now while I have feathers on the brain! LOL! Her whole concept was to think "outside the box" and story quilts. It was definitely "outside of my quilt box." I'll be honest, I love very traditional or scrappy quilts. Initially, Mary Lou's quilts look very nontraditional, but after her lecture and seeing her amazing quilts, she uses some traditional blocks and a scrappy flair. I loved them!!! I will apologize now for my terrible picture taking skills...here are just a few of her quilts...
Her book is wonderful, Out of the Box. You can purchase it on her website here.
Mary Lou and Cherries Too as well. I'll be looking forward to that!!
It was a great evening filled with inspiring eye candy!
