Here She Is, Miss Unique
Had a very fun, busy day yesterday. Went to Frankenmuth - a quaint little German town about 45 minutes from here - to hear a lecture and see a slide show by Sue Nichols (hope I spelled that right). Sue is from Ann Arbor but has become a nationally known quilter (along with her sister Pat Holly) and also teaches machine quilting. She and her sister made the Beattles quilt that won the Best of Show at Paducah some years back. She was fun to listen to and the quilts are gorgeous. There was a luncheon also and some vendors. At one vendors, I bought an adorable panel to make this owl pillow
Then early evening a bunch of us went out to dinner before guild. That is always fun - lots of giggles with those gals. And the program for guild was soooo good! Linda (who absolutely excels in paper piecing.) and Leslie (with her beautiful hand applique and embroidery) showed a wonderful array of their gorgeous quilts and wallhangings. All beautiful, some breathtaking, it was a wonderful program. I think I have mentioned before that Linda designs all her quilts on #Q7 and also has a line of patterns and a website. http://www.lakeviewquilting2.com/ Leslie's hand work is beautiful and her colors lovely. A fun program!
