A Big Howdy from Texas

A big hello from Kerrville Texas! I’m so excited to be spending the whole week teaching at Quilting Adventures in the Hill Country of Texas.  I really enjoy teaching for a whole week.  In a multi-day class, students are able to get so much done, and I can introduce new lessons in a leisurely way, when the time is right to learn the new-to-them technique.  The students are just amazing! Here’s a group photo from when I last taught here in 2009.

This Heart Quilt was designed and stitched by Janice Schindeler, of Houston, TX in my 2009 class. She made it for her husband, Harry, to whom she’s been married 40 years. A wonderful tribute to their marriage!

My fellow teachers are a great bunch! Here’s Paula Nadelstern whose kaleidoscope quilts are just awesome.

And here’s Katie Pasquini-Masopust, whose art quilts just get more amazing all the time. I took her class, Painted and Stitched Quilts, a couple of year ago and loved the technique.  Katie is now offering an online class — check it out!

And here are Katie and Paula goofing around beneath a Paula N. designed umbrella.  If you ever have a chance to take a class from either of theise wonderful ladies, I highly recommend it.

When the week is over I’ll post more photos to show you what amazing quilts my students have been creating this week.
