Joe Cunningham, aka Joe The Quilter

the joe retreat: two colors

By Patricia Belyea

UNION WA  Just because Joe Cunningham says that projects require just two colors doesn't mean that’s what’s going to happen. Take at look at the quilters and their works-in-progress as they piece daily assignments at a recent session of The Joe Retreat.

Sometimes, when everyone was getting into the flow of their own creations, Joe would play his guitar.

It was a fun week, culminating in a group photo with everyone wearing Okan Arts kimono!
