We met in Houston, at your booth. I'm a member of Quilters Anonymous in Edmonds, WA. You spoke to our guild last January, and I found your talk quite inspiring. I needed to make a challenge quilt for our show in March, and needed to make it fairly quickly. I hadn't done a lot of fusing, but decided to try it with this quilt. There's definitely a learning curve, but I had a lot of fun with it. It won best of challenge theme, as well as second best challenge quilt. I also entered it into the Western Washington fair, where it won a second place in its category, which came with a whopping $15.00 check.
Thank you again for your inspiring talk, and for the nudge to try something new.

P.S. This is my original design.
Laura and I, as always, had a great time in Houston. It is always so fun to see everybody. We will be in Des Moines next week, be sure and come by the booth. I am going to bring lots of Maderia #30 weight rayon thread to sell as well as all the fabulous fabrics, patterns, and silk. See you there!
