How DOES one combine a kitchen sink and the Lady of Guadalupe into a long and wonderful friendship?
It's really not hard when you admire your friends work like I do.... this is how I got to know Victoria Findlay Wolfe.
I first discovered Victoria's website when I was sent to look at her 'Kitchen Sink' quilt in 2010... really.. 2010
After that I stared to read her articles..... leave comments .... and then we started to chat and realized we had a lot in common.
She was always making something awesome, and still does. As an artist she comes to making quilts with a different eye than I do... a computer geek turned quiltmaker.
Then a few months later she was working on the Lady of Guadalupe and put out a call for some more fabrics with Roses on it.
I want hunting around, I found sevearl fabrics with roses fabrics... put them in the mail and we have been friends every since!
here we are on a trip I took to NYC to visit.. Victoria I need to do that again!
I am constantly inspired by her work... by not only how fast she works.. (she is MUCH faster than me.. and I'm fast! can you see I admire speed? why is that I wonder?)
But I'm also inspired about her stories. Her work often has meaning, the kind of meaning an artist always has. And I'm enthralled and fascinated by it.
She is now an award winning quilter, she has pieces in the museums, sits on the board of many organizations and is a master creator. I'm so happy to call her my friend.
For her block #72 in The Splendid Sampler™ she created 'Full Circle Star' .. and it's all about polka dot.. another thing we share a love of! I bought some of her Manor stripe Fabric to use.. it looks fantastic!
If you have not gotten one of her books, treat yourself , they are AMAZING
