Mary Anne and Renee who both won ribbons at this years World of Quilts hosted by the Northern Star Quilters. Your quilts rocked! Donna also entered a quilt – the first quilt she made and got some great comments from the judges. Donna is a goldsmith and jeweler…oh my goodness her pieces are beautiful.
Mary Anne has a new lecture that we were able to preview the other night at our Pelham Quilters meeting on “Fun Back” which includes the most recent fun back made for the Village Squares Quilters Raffle Quilt “Starry Night” (photo soon). This is a great lecture and Mary Anne has a simple explanation of the technique. She is soon going to be awarded a Golden Dragonfly…watch for that posting soon!
When I went through the show on Sunday I ended up missing two rows…the humidity in the gym was high (not complaining as it wasn’t their fault) and it was getting to me (who would believe that I lived in Georgia for a while!)
Kinda came back to bite me as one of my quilting students stopped me in the hall and asked me about her quilt. YIPES. After she picked it up we visited for a while pouring over all of the beautiful machine quilting work she did! She’s ready for the Advanced Machine Quilting (aka Let Your Foot Loose, Be Fancy & Free) at the quilt cottage in Mamaroneck. As soon as I have this scheduled I’ll post it here.
In October I’ll have a class with the Pelham Quilters – date to be determined as we get a little closer- I’m going to teach Winding Ways or Wheel of Mystery that I’ve designed in EQ6 with Fossil Ferns by Benartex. The goal is to have the quilt pieced and basic instructions ready in the next week or two.
Happy Quilting! Teri
