I am back from QSDS (Quilt & Surface Design Symposium) on the campus of Columbus College of Art and Design in downtown Columbus, Ohio.
What a great week! My friend Connie and I packed up and drove the 5-hour trip. It was a beautiful day for a drive.
I’m still ironing the fabric I printed, so before telling you about the actual class I took at QSDS, I wanted show you some art in downtown Columbus.
I had only been to Columbus once several years ago to see the Rolling Stones. We saw the concert, stayed at a hotel downtown, and then went home. Living for a week on this campus really gave me a flavor of the city. Everywhere we walked, there was art. Here are just a few pieces.
And that was just a taste of the art downtown. On Wednesday we went on the bus trip.
Our first stop was the Ohio Craft Museum.
Then we headed to Quilt National held at the Dairy Barn. Photos aren’t allowed in the show, so I bought the book to remember all the beautiful quilts.
It was a great afternoon out, but I was anxious to get back and print more fabric!
I decided not to take the apron I blogged about in my last post. I wanted an apron with more coverage, so I printed another one before I left. It worked out great. It kept a lot of dye off of me!
So much to see and do. So much to inspire. My next post will be about the reason I went to QSDS – Pat Pauly’s Glorious Prints class. Now back to ironing my new printed fabric.
What fun! Love your new apron, and I can’t to see the fabric you printded in Pat Pauly’s class.
Oops! Hit the button by mistake . . . Of course, I meant to write that I can’t wait to see your printed fabric. 🙂
Thanks for sharing the art in Columbus! It is great to see art in public spaces. I love your apron, too. Where did you find the blank apron … website?
I am glad you enjoyed seeing the art around the city. I have always found the downtown area to be so beautiful.
Shasta, It is amazing. What a great city for art.
Jane, I ordered several more to play with before I left, but they sent me an email said they couldn’t fill my order. However, I went to the website today and they are all still there. Not sure what that is about. I do love the fabric. It also would dye great. The website is banggood.com.
Janice, No problem! I knew what you meant! Thanks for stopping by.
