Quilt Show and Opera

I have made  some progress on a number of quilting projects I have but I prefer to blog when at least the  the tops are completed.
So instead, I'm going to show you a number of quilts done by my friend Jennifer.  She doesn't have a blog of her own but has granted me permission to show you her work.
I admire Jennifer's work ever since I met her about 23 years ago.  She is not afraid of trying different techniques and I am always so impressed what she can do with her fabric stash the way she puts fabrics together  to make a quilt.
She gives away a lot od her work to family and friends and her inspiration tends to be magazines or her imagination.

Musical inspiration for today....

Last night I attended Opera Australia production of La Bohème by Puccini.
The video I'm featuring here is not from that performance but by Angela GHEORGHIU  singing " Si mi chiamano Mimi" which is part of the love duet.  There is a connection with quilters and that is when she tells us in this aria that she is a seamtress that embroiders flowers...
