Zandy's colorful world

Every year my sister, Janet Houts, and I teach a 3 day workshop at Kanuga Conference Center in Hendersonville, NC. This year we offered a Log Cabin quilt and a Courthouse Steps table runner using my new Log Cabin Trim Tool

Like any quilt teacher, Janet and I absolutely love getting photos of finished quilts that were started in our workshops. Here is one that appeared in my email box this morning.

Zandy Jordan has been coming to our workshop in Kanuga for the past 5 years. She has a fantastic sense of color and how to use it in a quilt. The colors in this quilt are not those that might be chosen by a less courageous quilter, but Zandy is bold and decisive when putting unlike color combinations together. I love the 3 dimensional effect that Zandy's color placement has achieved. The use of dark values, bright, popping orange and red along with calmer colors provide big eye appeal for this quilt. 

Zandy lives in Florida and chose a nautical theme for the baby quilt she made for a young relative. This is her second Log Cabin quilt since the conference.
