Just finished a three-day color and design workshop with the Front Range Contemporary Quilters in Denver. What amazing artists these people are. Monday evening I gave a slide lecture to the general membership and there were stunning quilts hanging around the room. The originality, color, wit and expertise of the work rivaled anything I've seen in fine-art painting shows. The artists in the workshop ranged from relative beginners to some who are doing professional level work like that seen the night before. It was a challenge for me to challenge them and not leave the newbies behind. They were a wonderful group to work with. I hope that the workshop will help all of them to work with confident color and keep growing as the outstanding artists they are. Quilters are amazing colorists.
