Past due…

I had a lot of fun teaching earlier this spring that I never got around to telling you about!  I was gone so much of May, time got away from me.

The last few days of April, I visited the Mid Michigan Quilt Guild in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan.  I did my “What do they mean by ‘modern’ quilting?” lecture on the Tuesday evening.  They were a wonderful group and had super-great snacks!  (If I ever resist a home made brownie in your presence, there may be something seriously wrong with me!)  The next day, I taught my Modern Mystery class.  I’ve blurred out the blocks because – mystery and all!  We missed a couple of quilters for the photo who had to leave a bit early.  Just about everyone got their blocks finished and the speedy sewists got their quilt top put together.  We had such a great time!

In addition to being a lovely group, they meet in a wonderful facility at the Mt. Pleasant Commission on Aging.  Quilts decorate the room and the Commission serves a wonderful hot meal every day for a very reasonable price.

Gathering for the Thurs eve lecture

A couple of weeks later, I went to Canada to be the “guest artist” at the Oxford Quilt Guild‘s Quilt Show, Pieces of Magic.  I gave my lecture to one group on Thursday evening and another on Saturday morning.  In addition, I taught my Hand Applique class both Friday and Saturday afternoons.  I spent Friday morning looking at the beautiful quilts in their lovely show!  There were lots of wonderful quilts from their guild challenges to traditional and contemporary beauties and a few modern ones as well.

While I was in the area, I had dinner with some members of the London (Canada) Modern Quilt Guild.  Kristyn of Melon Patch Quilts and I connected on Instagram when I announced I would be in her neck of the woods teaching.  Chantal, founder of the London MQG and owner of the wonderful quilt shop, Hyggeligt, and Sheila, another member, joined us as well.  We had such a fun time chatting quilting and enjoying good food – is there anything better?!

I don’t have any teaching on my schedule in July and August, but I will have a booth at the Glass City Quilt Commission‘s quilt show on July 24 and 25.  I hope you’ll stop by if you are in the area!
