Student Work

I’ve done a lot of traveling in the last couple of months: spoke to several guilds, attended quilt shows, and taught a workshop.  It IMG_4818has been  wonderful to meet and talk with people about their quilting and to share my techniques.  In between all of that I’m also hearing from people who have read  my book.  I love it when they send pictures of what they have accomplished.

Great work, Judy!

One reader, Judy, sent me this photo of her with her friend Jane, and the thread-painted portrait she made of Jane.  I was pretty impressed.  Thanks for sharing.

 

 

Finally, here are photos of some of the ladies in my Thread-Painted Portrait workshop  at Quilter’s Station in Lee’s Summit, MO. What a delightful group.

Now, I’m preparing for a workshop and some lectures that I’ll be giving at the Festival of Quilts in Birmingham, England in August. Will I see you there?

Sharing Student Successes

The reward of being a teacher is to experience the success of one’s students.  In recent weeks, I’ve been sent photos of finished work from several students.  Some of these photos have come from other states and other continents.  The magic of the internet is that it bridges great distances.  Below, please enjoy some of the work that others have done using my lessons on fused appliqué.
