Inspirations From An Art Retreat with Nancy Crow

Inspirations From An Art Retreat with Nancy Crow
by Elaine Schmidt

“The Improv De-Railed Quilt I designed for the Spring 2014 issue of Modern Quilts Unlimited was inspired by a Nancy Crow workshop I attended last spring. I have long been an admirer of artist Nancy Crow’s work. Her exhibition quilts have always captured my attention and I dreamt that one day I might be able to hear her lecture or perhaps even take a class with her. That dream became a reality last May when I was able to attend a retreat she conducted at her studio, the Crow Timber Frame Barn, in Baltimore, Ohio, just outside of Columbus. The topic of the week long work-shop was Strip-Piecing & Restructuring.”
