Lecture/Teaching at a Hall County Quilt Guild

I had a fun day today - I did my first lecture/workshop at a quilt guild that I don't belong to. It was a lot of fun. I talked about my collection of fabric postcards and then led a workshop on making them. The guild is about 55 miles away so it took most of the day. I had a great time! Of course, I forgot to take my camera with me so no pictures to show.

The rest of the day I worked on my row for the row quilt we are doing at Allatoona. The meeting is tomorrow and I have to show them the row that we will be making next week. I finished doing the fusible applique tonight and will show it without the stitching but will get the stitching done in time for the workshop next Tuesday.

I can't believe what stupid thing I did for next week. I am going to MQX with Michelle from the guild and I had marked on the calendar that we were leaving on Wednesday so there would be no problem with me teaching the workshop on my row. Thankfully, Michelle pointed out to me that we are leaving on Tuesday. I did check my airplane tickets and sure enough we are leaving on Tuesday. Lucky for me, my friend Mary agreed to actually lead the workshop for me. She taught a fusible applique class last month to the guild, so this is a natural follow on to that. I do feel bad that I can't be there, but I will have the row done, the patterns copied and a set of instructions written. I guess I will owe her big time for this one.


  1. I belong to the Silver Comet Quilters in Hiram Georgia--how could we get in touch with you to do a program for us? And I am interested in getting a quilt machine quilted.

  2. It's always great when quilters share their experiences and love of quilting.

  3. I did something similar last week on our return from Mexico. I thought we were getting back on Friday and made a date to do a shop hop with a GF. But then I had to cancel because our flight didn't get in until 3:30 on Sat. Totally missed the shop hop this year.

  4. Hello! I enjoyed my visit to your blog! Lots of photos, beautiful quilts!!! Those dog quilts! Wow!
    Happy stitching!


I would love to hear from you. Make sure I have a way to contact you if you have a question.
