Fall Paducah 2017

What an honor it was to be an instructor at the first ever AQS Fall Paducah 2017 show!!

The day before classes started we decided to do a little site-seeing and a trip to Hancock’s!!  Let’s just say I did some retail therapy!!!

 

The show was wonderful as were my students!!  I just love sharing what I know about quilting, and was thrilled that so many students wanted to learn!!

I had three customer quilts that were juried into the Paducah show:

Congratulations to Ellen as one of her quilts (Summer of ’59), won a Third Place Ribbon in the Whimsical Quilt category:

My customer, Chris, had her beautiful Tula Pink Butterfly quilt hanging at the show.  It looked beautiful hanging there.  And while this quilt didn’t win any ribbons, it did actually make it onto the news!!

Here’s the link for the news segment!!  http://www.wpsdlocal6.com/2017/09/15/fall-quilt-show-brings-new-people-paducah/

We did see a few fun sites on our drive home.

Have you ever seen a pumpkin this large?

We saw this castle along the way in Kentucky and I just had to pull the car over and take a picture of this!!  Pretty cool!!!

All in all this was an amazing experience!!

 

Happy Quilting!!

This is Why I Love to Teach!!

I hope everyone is doing well.

If you remember, In July I taught a class and did a lecture at AQS Syracuse.  During the lecture, I shared how I go about deciding how to quilt my quilts, and also had students bring in quilt tops to try to get ideas of how to quilt them.

Much to my surprise and delight, I received an email from a quilter that attended my lecture and she also sent me a picture of the finished quilt.

Here is the content of her email:

Hello Jane,

I attended your lecture at Quiltweek in Syracuse last July.  I had a quilt with me asking for suggestions.  I finished it this week, and thought I’d share it with you.  This is a close up shot, as the full one doesn’t show the quilting very well. 

I want to thank you for sharing your experience and skill with the rest of us, and giving me the confidence to do more of this kind of quilting!

I also thought I would attach a couple of links to her blog, as she talks about the lecture and then about finishing this quilt.

It does my heart so good to know that I was able to help someone with even a little bit of information or encouragement!!

Here are a couple of the latest quilts I have been working on……
