Miller and John Bunge
A week ago my laptop computer died. It is currently getting a new hard drive, which means I'm a bit out of date, using my old computer. Please forgive me if you have asked to be removed from this list - I promise I'll rectify this soon.
This is a short version of the newsletter. I've had a wonderful time at home this summer. When we returned from the spring tour, I stupidly opened up my studio cupboard and found a whole bunch of UFOs that I forgot I made. I picked one per week to work on, and cleared away a few. Most of them only needed a bit of quilting and binding, so they were pretty quick to finish.
That got me back to creative work, and I've tried some new techniques that are very exciting to me. Details below under "What I'm Working On".
I approach our final Big Driving tour with mixed emotions. While it will be good for us and the car to not embark on these huge gear-laden drives, I shall deeply miss the regular chance to share my music and quilts with everyone. I'll miss the ability to teach so much, and I'll miss the chance to explore new areas of the country. I'm hoping this tour is the best of all!
I hope you can come to see us at one of the appearances below - come with your requests for songs, and please say hi when you're there!
If this is the first newsletter from me you've seen, welcome! I post them here on the website once a month or so, when there's something I think you'll be interested in. You can sign up for email notifications of new newsletters by sending me an email with "Subscribe" in the header.

Mock Mola class in
We had an
extraordinary visit to Alaska in July.
I taught a Mock Mola class, and this was the result.
Here's one from the day we visited a reindeer farm.
It was a great trip. If you've never been to this part of Alaska, you should put it on your bucket list!!!
What I'm Working On
I've had a very productive summer!
Shhh! Don't tell my brother he's about to get this portrait of his old house as a gift during this fall tour! I tried a new technique I learned from my friend Ruth Bloomfield in Queensland, Australia - confetti appliqué - for the trees. There's no product of any kind used in this technique: no fusible or netting overtop. Just tiny bits of fabric and thread. Fun, fun, fun! And I love how you can see the sky peeking through the leaves as a result. I did fuse the rest of it.
My friend Aileen
and I challenged each other to make a quilt based on the class we took
with Katie Pasquini Masopust a couple of years ago, using something from
our "blind painting" pieces.
