Meeting Didi

A special perk of conferences is meeting other teachers.  Didi Salvatierra and I learned we had much in common.  We grew up less than 60 miles apart and attended the same college for a while.

Didi is a talented and award-winning quilt artist.  I enjoyed seeing some of her beautiful work.  I also noted how well her wardrobe coordinated with her quilts!  Visit her website:  http://www.didiquilts.com/  to learn more.

Stars on the Susquehanna

Didi combined contemporary fabrics by Michael James and Kaffe Fasset with vintage soft blue star blocks in "Stars on the Susquehanna."  I love the resultant fresh look!   

Her hand quilting is beautiful.  Didi's clients include: The Mountain Mist company, Barbara Brakman, Mimi Dietrich, Carole A. Liebzeit and AQS quilt appraiser Mary W. Kerr.

Didi shows samples for her class.  Her fabulous bag features a Jean Wells design.

Festival chair was the incredible Karin Tauber.  We all had a great time!
