A Little Trip to Northern New Mexico

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
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.

Susan Wood
Susan Wood designed and stitched this circular star in one day in the Sensational Stars class. Way to go, Susan!

Diane Mattern

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!
