Quilting by the Lake


Quilting by the Lake is hosted by the Schweinfurth Art Center and held on the campus of Onondaga Community College in Syracuse.  Each summer they offer classes during the last two weeks of July, drawing participants from around the country and overseas.

This year Priscilla, Anne, and I went to QBL together and shared a suite in the dorms.

We took Carol Soderlund's class, "In The Thick Of It:  Working With Thickened Dyes." 

Carol had us create our own palette of colors in thickened dyes to use for the week.  We created lots of tools for mark making and printing.

Carol decorated this tote bag for the Friday night instructor's auction, a fund-raiser for the QBL scholarship fund.

Pat Pauly was one of the vendors on hand during the week.
