I completed a few more blocks for Noah and Matilda.
And speaking of Noah & Matilda.....
I'm excited to announce that Dawn Cook-Ronningen of Collector with a Needle.
is making a Guest Appearance next month here in northern Virginia!
Dawn will be in Warrenton, VA on June 17th and 18th for a special 2 day Event.

Please contact Kelly Ann for ticket availability.
(there are a limited number of seats left for the bus event)
The shop has offered classes on traditional and modern applique using Dawn's beautiful patterns. Our most recent adventure has been a Noah & Matilda Quilt Study and BOM program. I've been honored to teach this course with great insight from Dawn - pattern Designer and owner of the Noah & Matilda quilt of 1854.
A few of my students brought in Show & Tell this month:
These students are very excited for the opportunity to meet with Dawn in June!
I will be equally happy to see her again.
And yes...she is as generous, talented, knowledgeable and gracious in person, as she is on her blog.
every quilt tells a story.....
