Whew! MAQ!

I have just returned from teaching at Mid-Aappalachian Quilt Conference at Mount St. Mary’s University. My head is filled with inspiration from wonderful, creative students. 

Isn’t this tulip quilt beautiful! It was a luxury to have two days to work on the Appliqué Quilting in Layers pieces. I got to know some lovely quilters that were intrepid and embraced trying new techniques. 

Susie chose to sew a canvas to showcase her original design.

She plans to add detail to this gorgeous dragonfly’s wings with sparkling, gossamer netting. 

Watching the designs build and seeing students master the technique is exciting. I’m inspired to sew another tulip myself!


I also taught Piecing Quilting in Layers. This soft green background reminds me of Spring. I hope I get a photo of the finished quilt.  Many of the students had very good sewing skills and decided to try the more challenging techniques. I got so excited seeing their successful inset strip blocks that I neglected to get photos. Darn!


I would love to have taken these blocks home. 

I am so lucky to spend time with quilters. Sincerely, thank you to all for allowing me to enjoy your company and be a small part in the creative process.

  1. It was great taking your class Terry at MAQ. It was great having a 2 day class and learning such a unique technique. Can’t wait to see how else you use it.

    You are an amazing teacher. Your calming effect helped everyone channel their creative side. I loved it and can’t wait to work on finishing my dragonfly and work on another one!
