I took the Amtrak train from Michigan to Pat's house in Illinois, and we took a road trip through Indiana, where we stopped in Shipshewana, which is Amish country. Then we continued to North Olmsted, Ohio (near Cleveland).
The seminar provided so much information! It was all lecture, so we didn't have to drag sewing machines around.
Ricky was joined by Alex Anderson and Libby Lehmann, and between the three of them they covered so many techniques. Ricky is known for his incredible applique techniques, Alex is more of a traditional quilter and showed hand quilting techniques, and Libby is known for her innovative surface embellishment technique called "threadplay."
I'm going to talk at length about our adventure in my podcast next week, but until then I'll share the following slide show with you.
