Kay brought along a number of quilts to demonstrate. There were three large ones hanging on the wall and a whole pile of smaller ones which depicted her quilt journey and development as an artist through the years.
She gave me permission to photograph her quilts. I was too far back during the lecture to be able to photograph the ones she demonstrated, but here are the 3 big ones on the wall. My poor photography will never do them justice.

Kay uses a number of techniques to give texture and depth to her quilts. These flowers are 3-D, as are the stems and the moss behind them. All of it is textural and very realistic.
This little bird is sculpted with threads and the flowers are also 3-D.
Kay has just released a new DVD. She also does lectures, classes and makes quilts on commission. If you would like to know some more, this is her web page www.kayhaerland.com There is also a wonderful gallery of her stunning quilts.
Just to set the record straight, I haven't received a commission for these comments.
Til next time.....Keep on stitching.
