My quilting community is very important to me. The wonderful quilters in my community are a source of inspiration, learning and joy.
When I see new projects shared by my quilty friends, I’m inspired to learn new techniques.
When I teach my demos and classes, I also learn from my students. Every class is an opportunity to learn how to help quilters learn new techniques.
When I see the smiles of accomplishment of my class participants, it is pure joy!
I share my Technique Sampler. It is my original design, pieced by myself and long arm quilted by Linda Schmidt. I designed this quilt to teach a variety of techniques to the Quilter’s at my local quilt shop.
This quilt represents what is my quilting community, it was designed for, shared with and enjoyed in my quilting community.
A group entry of Technique Samplers from my demo students was planned for Heritage Park’s Festival of Quilts this May. I truly hope we may share our community of Technique Samplers at a future date.
Right now, it is important to continue to be connected with our quilting community. Zoom sew days and Zoom classes are making those live connections possible. Sharing our projects on Facebook or Instagram bring us all together.
As a thank you to my quilting community, I have designed two complementary Scrap Basket patterns and Quilt Along. Both projects are a quilt along with steps being released every couple of weeks. The first Scrap Basket pattern was completed on April 4th and the pattern is still available on my blog. The second Scrap Basket pattern was launched on April 18th. Consider finding a new bundle or solid to add to your stash and join the new Scrap Basket Quilt Along.
