In addition to having our own time to create in our comfy mountain retreat house, we had the pleasure of visiting with the illustrious Valerie White for a trunk show of her beautiful work.  It was a special treat to tour her artfully appointed yet very comfortable home and studio space.  She even prepared a lovely lunch for us!

Next, we stopped in at the Rocky Mountain Wa Shonaji Quilt Guild’s opening reception for their annual quilt exhibition.  These ladies do a top-notch presentation, with gorgeous quilts, an ATC mini-exhibition, fun games, giveaways handcrafted by the guild members and yes, a nice buffet ; )

 The exhibition, “I Did It My Way”,  is on view now thru September 28 at the Blair Caldwell Library in Denver. I had lots of faves in the show, but here are a few:

Between Valerie and the Wa Shonaji guild, we left inspired to go back up the mountain and continue to create, laying the groundwork for an extra-productive African Fabric Month in September — get ready!!
