Well, last night was something of a surprise. Jeanie Sumrall-Ajero tagged me in a facebook post letting me know that our quilt, Feather Zone, was chosen as the quilt on the bookmark for Quilt Expo in September. This is so cool. So.stinkin’.cool. Feather Zone will most likely be at Quilt Expo with Jeanie in the Kaleidoscope Collections booth. We had no idea this would happen. Thank you Wisconsin Public Television and Quilt Expo!
And then I got a text from Keith letting me know that at the Tucson Quilters Guild Annual Show Tilde won a First place ribbon in the “Two person Piecing/Applique” category and Exemplary Machine Applique. Woohoo! Way to go Keith. Cristy Fincher (Sharon Schambers daughter) posted a photo on Instagram (follow me at terilucas). You may remember that the central motif is from Sharon Schambers “Fresno”. I love it when something I’ve quilted brings other people great joy.
You all know that teaching machine quilting is one of my very favorite things in life aside from quilting itself. I love that moment when I see everything coming together, the quilters body relaxes, the machine slows down and the quilting just happens. Those are indeed magical moments. I love too helping quilters figure out how to problems solve what’s going on with their machine.
I’m also happy to share with you that I’m scheduled to teach Free Motion Machine Quilting at Brooklyn General February 15th and 22nd. I’d love to have you as a student if you’re in the area!
I’m also teaching at the Minnesota Quilt Show June 12 – 14. Looking at the faculty list I’m really excited. This is a new to me show and I’m looking forward to it and meeting up with friends and quilters!
I’m working on one day guild event in NJ.
