Celebrity-edition Friday five


1. Who is your favorite Quilt Celebrity?
Well, I started to say either Alex Anderson or Ricky Tims, but I think I will go with Paula Nadelstern instead.

2. Have you ever met a Quilt Celebrity? Yes. I belong to a big guild that has had many of these people - Quilt Celebrities, that is - as speakers at one time or another, and when I was an officer a few years back we would go out to dinner with the speaker before the meetings. So I have had dinner with both Alex and Ricky (not at the same time), and with Becky Goldsmith of Piece O'Cake Designs, and a few other people like that. (They were all extremely nice, by the way.) And I have taken a class from Ricky, also, as well as from Roberta Horton and Libbie Lehman and a couple of other people who I guess would qualify as celebrities!

3. Why are they your favorite Quilt Celebrity? I like her quilts a lot and she has interesting hair! (See below.)

4. Would you consider yourself a groupie? No, I'm not really the groupie type.

5. Share a picture of your favorite celebrity. Well, this is not a great picture but you can kind of get the idea.
Paula Nadelstern and her quilt

(Her hair was sort of a weird variation on a Princess Leia thing - piled up on both sides.)

I love her work, too. Even have a number of her books.. Haven't completed any quilts though, I usually end up running out of time or patience. I have created a number of kalediscope pieces but never incorporated in any FOs. Do you have any kalediscope quilts?

No, I haven't made any. I was sort of sorry after I heard her talk that I didn't take the workshop. Even though I'd seen a number of her quilts, I don't think I had looked really closely at how they were made prior to that. I thought they were more like a stack-n-whack, when in fact that's not how they're made at all.
