Bayside Quilters

Thank you so much to the Bayside Quilters for inviting me to lecture and teach. I explored the lovely town of Easton and drove to St. Michael's where I took the picture above. It looks like I'm on the water but really hanging out from the dock, just wishing I was kayaking!
The area is steeped in history, Harriet Tubman and Frederick Douglas and there is a maritime museum and streets lined with lovely harbor homes dating from the 1700's. Great restaurants, ice cream shops and boutiques.
Someday I am going to return to the area so I can sail on a skipjack or long canoe– they have sails! Definitely to eat Maryland crab cakes and Chesapeake oysters.
This trip I am having a wonderful time with the Bayside Quilters. They even have a Summer Camp for quilters in this active guild. I'm wondering if they have s'mores…!
Everyone jumped right in to learn the Quilting in Layers technique. These ladies are skilled and talented quilters and I think their quilts are going to be beautiful.
Isn't this the perfect background for a sunflower.
Sue decided on a neutral color way so she has some options for tulip appliqué.

Nita has a coffee theme selected and plans to appliqué a steaming mug. I can't wait to see these quilts. Every time I teach this workshop, I learn something from the quilter's creativity. Thank you all for letting me spend a great day with the fun quilters of the Eastern Shore!
