I had a great time in Farmington New Mexico last week for the San Juan Quilter’s Guild Meeting and to teach the Sensational Stars class. Here’s some photos from show and tell:
Donna Schmitt showed this quilt at the guild meeting. The blocks were made by her mother-in-law from fabrics that belonged to her mother and mother-in-law some 60-70 years ago. She decided it was time to sew them together! A very special quilt!
The guild had been doing Round Robins and this was one of those displayed. A truly beautiful example of a round robin quilt.
They also had a project to teach young people to quilt. Two girls were at the meeting and showed off their quilt tops. Here is a photo of one of the students and one of the student quilts.
And these beautiful bride and groom quilts were made by a woman for her daughter and son-in-law to be.
One last image from my trip to Farmington, NM: Here’s a star that Diane Mattern designed in a class that I taught in Durango, CO the year before. I love it!
I’ll be back in Farmington at the end of August to teach again for the San Juan Quilter’s Guild. I’ll be teaching a two day Flying Colors workshop. Hope to see some of you wonderful ladies again!
