In 2016 I had the pleasure of attending a quilting retreat about improvising and composition hosted by one of my mentors, Ricky Tims. Ricky smiled when he saw me there being that our styles and process for making quilts are totally opposite of each other. When I start a quilting project, I have a rather good idea of what the quilt will look like even before the fabric is purchased. Ricky on the other hand has the ability to start a project with no vision of the completed quilt. He lets the project guide him throughout the entire process of creating his quilt. Ricky knowing my style knew my attending the retreat was going to make me explore a side of my creativity I had never tapped into before. It was a good week.
