Even though I do not like to fly, it is hard not to appreciate the beauty from up above.
I convinced my sister Amy that she needed to come with me to MQX and I am so glad she came. She was incredible and the best help to me. She even force fed me in the mornings, you'll have to ask her about that. ;-)
I was worried about making sure I had time to adjust to the time difference, so we flew in a day before I was supposed to be there for the Ice Cream Social at MQX. We got a chance to enjoy Boston for a little bit and I thoroughly enjoyed the Boston Tea Party Museum. I love history!
I also love being to enjoy the textures and quilting inspirations that can be found everywhere!
The best part of teaching is being able to quilt! I love being able to share what I know and have my students try it out and gain confidence in their own quilting.
I taught 9 classes at MQX - three hands-on and 6 lecture demo.
I really can't thank you all enough for coming out. I had the best students and they made me feel so welcome. Really, thank you! I am humbled to know that you wanted to take my classes. It's so surreal most of the time to realize where quilting has taken me, but I couldn't have gotten here without the encouragement from all of you. So again, thank you!
I was able to meet Lisa Calle - she is so amazing, talented and really, really nice. So lovely to meet her.
Of course, Helen and Jenny were there and we had the best time together. I seriously love these girls! It was fun having dinner as our sister duo. Let's make it happen again girls at HMQS!
This pizza was a welcome sight after a week of salads and granola bars. It was just what we needed to celebrate the last day of class. Thanks again Amy, you are the best!
I want to come back, seriously. Maybe next year?
In the meantime, I am preparing to leave for Paducah next week. I am sneaking in some quilting too. Watch for my next post on the progress of my newest design, Bohemian.
