QSDS

Next week I'm off to Columbus Ohio for the Quilt Surface Design Symposium. I'm taking a 2 day class with Leslie Gabrielese and a 5 day class with Fran Skiles. I love going to QSDS - meeting up with old friends, learning new techniques and skills, and most of all the general atmosphere. It's a constant high from early morning to late at night. I can't wait!

As part of the conference there is a silent auction of small art quilts, 9" x 9". Using the scraps from the previous quilt, I've made a little piece that somehow turned out looking like an abstract eye. I plan to donate this, but it always leaves me with a queasy feeling. Not because I don't want to give up the quilt, but because I'm always fearful that nobody will want it and it will be the lone piece left on the table, pointing out to all the world that I'm a fraud, or something like that. Baring my insecurities for everybody to see here.... So if you're going to QSDS, please put in a bid on my quilt. Or you could email a bid to linda@qsds.com

They're auctioned off at the end of the 4th session, and I will be home by then, so I won't have to be witness to whatever happens....

I put this directly on the scanner, which seemed to be wide enough, but apparently not because it cut off the sides.



Here's looking at you!

This is gorgeous, and I would bid on it in a SECOND if I had any $ at all! It's funny how many of us think "But wait until they catch me out as a fraud..." - NOPE! You BELONG at that conference and in that company!

I am happy to hear that I am not the only one who feels this way. Last year I was astoundd that Lucky was worried that her piece wouldn't go for over $100 (retale). I kept reassuring her there was always a mad rush in the last moments and that her pieces ALWAYS generate their share of activity....she STILL was worried. And yes, it went for well over $100......See everyone, even the BIGGIES have their insecurities!!

teri (BTW, I will surely bid on this....)
