Australian classes and students

I had so many wonderful students when I taught at Australasian Quilt Convention 2013 in April. This slideshow has photos of some of them with their work.

P.S. This is the first slideshow I made with Smilebox. Let me know what you think. When I have lots of photos to share, would you like watching them this way? I would welcome any constructive criticism. Thanks!

East Cobb Quilters’ Guild show coming up June 14-16 in Marietta Georgia

The fabulous East Cobb Quilters’ Guild will hold its quilt show, “Georgia Celebrates Quilts,” June 14-16  at the Cobb Civic Center in Marietta, Georgia. If you are in the area or can get there, don’t miss it.

It is a big show! They will display 360 of “Georgia’s finest quilts.” (I’ve taught at this guild and seen what these quilters can do, so I don’t think they are bragging about that!) There are also vendors, demonstrations, raffles, quilt appraisals and a silent auction. There’s more information on the guild’s website.

The guild’s 2013 Raffle Quilt (below and above) was made from Kim McLean’s pattern “Stars and Sprigs.” Guild members made the blocks, and five other members did the appliqued borders. It was quilted by Melinda Fulkerson, also a guild member. “We’re pretty proud of it,” says Pat Allen, Show Publicity Co-Chair, “and we think it will be the star of our show.” They are rightfully proud. Who wouldn’t kill to own this beauty?
