What a great opening to Primitives of the Midwest here at Quilters Station in Lee Summit Missouri. Jennifer from American Patchwork and Quilting magazine opened the Monday night program. She had us all in stitches and shared many of the quilts from upcoming issues. Just a heads up they are featuring me in the October issue which will be on sale in August. Today I got a preview of the article. What a great job they have done!
I will be here all week. I am so happy we are teaching indoors as it is 100 degrees with incredible humidity! My fist class was from my Urban Sacs book, the Vintage Duffel. We worked on applique, logcabin pockets and assembly.
It was wonderful to see the students using different embellishments, ribbons and textural fabrics.
The other treat was that Barb Thatcher who took my Folklore quilt last year returned with a complete project that she had done some great embellishment on. I just love seeing how my patterns are interpreted and how each individual makes it there own.
As you know I am very partial to Japanese fabrics. I love the way she fussy cut the bird fabric for her corner blocks.
