Pamela Allen Workshop

I was in the amazing Pamela Allen workshop last week at Jamie Fingal's studio. We did several quick exercises. I couldn't believe everyone's results from working so fast! Here are some of my workshop pieces: a couple of cats, a still life with a fish, a two-color still life, a person (my original person got transformed into a wild woman), and a complementary color landscape.
Some of these may be expanded into finished quilts; others will stay in the UFO pile.
Anyway, I had a lot of fun. It was very freeing.

Books, books, books!

Lots of things going on. I'm excited to be part of a wonderful book that will come out in October. It's called Embellished Small Quilts; Jamie Fingal is the author, Lark Books is the publisher. I have two quilts in it, "Happy Birthday to Me" and "Lily Pond," which you can see on my website: www.cindycooksey.com. From what I've seen, it's going to be a great book! You can find more information about this book on Amazon and/or the Lark Books website. Check it out!

Also, the Alzheimer's: Forgetting Piece by Piece book is out! My copy just arrived in the mail today. All profit from the sale of the book will be used to fund Alzheimer's research. My quilt, "Gaps," is on page 10. The quilts are touring the country, plus there's a DVD, and now a beautiful book! If you want to learn more about it, go to www.AlzQuilts.org.
