A Success

Thanks to Weeks Ringle and Bill Kerr for a FANTASTIC presentation Sunday.  They couldn't be friendlier and more open.  It was inspirational to hear them talk about their design process and the evolution of their quilt designs.  It is clear that they complement each other in so many ways.  Something admirable, to be sure.

And the QUILTS!  I think they brought everything in their studio over for us to fondle, including ALL the quilts from the new book, Quilts Made Modern.  Pop over to Kate's blog for some great pics of the day.
