I'm so excited to announce that the very first class of our Noah & Matilda quilt study group began yesterday!
I've been planning & discussing this course with Dawn (Collector with a Needle) since August. Her patterns are amazing!
I had the privilege of introducing her work to a few of my students back in October. Some of you may have seen the pictures I posted of their beautiful Rose & Reel quilt tops.
Noah & Matilda was love at first site for me! I was drawn into the age, complexity and interesting family history of this quilt. I couldn't help thinking that my interest and affection for it might also be shared by other quilters in my area. So the concept of offering this as a monthly instructional and lecture/discussion type program flowered into a structured Quilt Study Group.
I'm presenting this course at Kelly Ann's in Warrenton, VA.
We have a nice size class - 17 members in all.
For an Applique course, I'm very happy with the turn out! With all of my excitement to begin yesterday - I forgot to take pictures.
But I promise to take a few at each of the remaining monthly meetings.
I do have some goodies to share....
Each month my students receive a special fabric package that has been custom kitted for them at the shop.
Here are the lovely treats they received for Month 1.
Here are larger pictures of my January blocks:
With out Dawn's insight, talent and generosity this course would not have been possible. My students and I are very grateful to her for this opportunity!
every quilt tells a story....
