Things Don’t Always Work Out as Planned!!

Things don’t always work out as planned, do they?  Life is certainly interesting and it always amazes me how things work out in the end.

Earlier this month I was supposed to teach at Birds of A Feather Event in Virginia.  Due to some unforeseen circumstances (I won’t bore you with the details!!), my classes were cancelled.    I was a little disappointed, but in the end it all worked out, as my husband ended up in the hospital, and I probably would have had to cancel anyway.  My husband is doing well, and in the end all worked out for the best!!  I’m a firm believer that when one door closes, another door will open!  I do understand that the Birds of A Feather event was a smashing success!!

I taught a free motion beginner’s class yesterday at Serendipity Quilt Shop in Dagsboro, DE.  This class always does my heart good because most times students come in with a lot of speculation as to whether they can learn this technique or not…..and they end up leaving with smiles on their faces and a confidence in their new skills!!  It’s always fun to see quilters discover free motion quilting, no matter if they are on their domestic machines or a longarm.

I wanted to share a few quilts with you that I have recently completed, as this wouldn’t be fair to hold back on that part of my posts… would it!! 🙂

Pat’s Dresden Wall Hanging that is currently being displayed at the Greenbelt Courthouse.

These two pictures are from my latest quilt.  I will post more pictures when I am able to get it totally finished.

I hope everyone is enjoying this warm weather… February no less!!!!

Happy Quilting!!

    So sorry to hear about your classes but I agree about the door closing and opening!
    I love Serendipity Quilt shop and stop every time I head to the condo. I do want to remind you some of us are teachers and some are not and that goes for teachers of all subjects from math to learning to quilt a top! I have no desire to learn that finishing part of putting a quilt together as I would much rather spend my hubs hard-earned dollars on fabric and the knowledge of a qualified quilter! You, my dear, are a teacher and that is why you have so many gals who clamor to take your classes. They want to learn from someone who KNOWS her art and can teach it well. And I don’t think I have to mention you are an extraordinary quilter!
