Karen Stone...is an awesome artist, quilter, teacher, and woman!! I took her class New York Beauty. The quilt above.
This is Karen and I together..I wanted to take a picture of this quilt with her..because I was in Houston a few years ago, and saw this beauty in person, with a big fat ribbon on it!! In person this quilt will blow your mind...I tried to give you a close up...
There is soooo much going on here...reverse applique, ribbons, bobbin stitching....and major quilting!! Karen is very talented. The class sat and drooled over this quilt for quite a while :):)
I had the honor of taking her out dinner after class...and we had a great time...(except when I got lost) I am still new to this city, and I was to take her out for dinner and then get her back to her hotel...so embarrassing :(:( blush!!.....But, Karen was gracious and kind!! Thank you Karen for the talk, and inspiration!! I will always be a fan!!
