LAMQG Denyse Schmidt weekend

The Los Angeles Modern Quilt Guild was lucky enough to have Denyse Schmidt to town this past weekend for a visit that included a talk and two workshops.

The weekend started on Friday night with her talk. It was hugely inspiring and spanned her career, design process and inspirations.
