Visiting with Karen Stone!!

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!!

OH I just love her quilts too! I have always wanted to make one of her NYB quilts, the choosing of the fabrics always scared me! did she give you any tips on choosing fabrics for the quilt?
hey taking a wrong turn only gave you more time to talk to her :)
