Noah & Matilda - a special Guest Appearance!

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.

On Wednesday June 17th at 1:30 pm Dawn will provide a Trunk Show and Lecture at the Warrenton Welcome Center. On Thursday June 18th Dawn will be a Speaker and guest on a Bus Trip event to the Virginia Quilt Museum to view the exhibit "A Virginia Tribute to Jane Stickle". (the original Dear Jane)

This 2 day event is being sponsored by Kelly Ann's Quilting in Warrenton.
If you'd like to come out and meet Dawn, you may choose to attend her 1 day Lecture or the 2 day Lecture and Bus Trip 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.....
