Firstly, I want to say thank you to all that commented on my little bragging. Your comments meant a lot to me. You gals/quilters are quite supportive and oh so inspirational! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
MQX was a great learning experience! My days were filled with classes!
Sadly, I don't have pictures to show you. I asked dd if I could borrow her camera, which she hesitantly said yes. This is an 11 year old we're talking about. Her camera is quite small and oh so convenient! Anyway, she couldn't find the connector to charge the camera. Sigh...! How typical! Have you seen her room lately....? lol
This year, as I mentioned in a previous post, I took classes from teachers who used an APQS machine. I didn't set out to be all APQS, but it turned out that way.
I took a class from Sue Patten and let me tell you, she's a hoot! The class was on borders and sashing! I have never seen someone quilt a design in such a small space. Amazing!
Kim Brunner is another teacher that I found knowledgeable and entertaining! I learned many tip bits about marking your quilts and designs to use.
Dawn Cavanaugh was one that I took many classes from. By the way, she was nominated teacher of the year! Yea Dawn! Her breakfast on Solving Tension Headaches was worth its weight in gold! Her class Quilting Feathers when you're a Chicken was perfect for me! Bawk bock, bock, bock....! ;o)
Friday night was the banquet with guest speaker Mark Lipinski. I haven't laughed like that since the Ricky Tims' Seminar! He's quite the funny story teller, he had me in stitches!
As you can just imagine, it was a great learning and fun experience for me. However, the most important piece of information, aside from all the new knowledge, that I came away with is "slap on some fabric and play!" That might be obvious for most of you but somehow it never occurred to me that I should be doing that. I think it was partly due to having so little guiltless time that I didn't want to spend it not being productive. Well.... school's out, let's shout.... it's time to play with Penelope!
Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a great day!
