Simply Beautiful

Today I am highlighting the classes Sylvia Lewis will be teaching at the Quilt Walk Festival this year.  One of the things Sylvia said about her quilts is that she likes simple shapes and designs.  I think these simple shapes and designs have alot of WOW factor.  I really like them.





Another WOW.
I  like that she showed how different types of prints and colors could be used in this quilt. A lady of few words and great talent, This is what she had to say about herself.  "I am a native Utahn. I lived most of my life in Salt Lake City.  My husband and I are now living in Central Utah with 2 spoiled dogs. I have always loved needlework and crafts.  I started seriously quilting in the mid 90's.  I love to work with simple shapes and designs that can be used in a myriad of variations. The last few years I have become addicted to knitting lace and socks."


Oh My, Look at this lace shawl she has done.   Beautiful, but it does not look simple.
