What to Quilt?!

Sunday, Feb. 22, long arm professional, Cheryl Winslow, taught a class on choosing the proper quilting designs for your quilts. She gave us some excellent food for thought regarding our fabrics, choice of thread and scale of the quilt designs. The class was well attended with over 10 people who shared their quilt tops and generated alot of discussion! Keep an eye out for a repeat of this sensational class! Also Sunday morning, when I arrived for class, I found a "love" note from THE Mark Lipinski! He came to see our shop and arrived after 5 on Saturday! I dropped him a line and invited him back! He said he'd try again and gave us a nice mention on his blog Thanks, Mark!
