Teaching in Florida

Yesterday my class in Tampa Florida made "Small Autumn Mums". I was a little apprehensive about teaching my "raw edged fused technique" to this group as they are traditional applique people, but they took to it like a duck to water. They loved the process and had a great time cutting free form and using all fused fabrics. Several woman told me they had been "afraid" to use fusible web and were delighted to have this opportunity in a save environment to "play" with fusibles. EVERYONE made a beautiful small quilt top. I was so happy for them. We had a great day working while it rained outside. Sunny Florida is currently not living up to it's reputation!!
Tomorrow I will be down in Sarasota and teaching SunDance.
In this class we use two different decorative blades to create our Fun in the Sun SunDance quilt. If you live in the area sure to stop by the shop, "Sew Worth It", and say hello. You can always stick your head in the class room and see what we are making.
It is only suppose to reach 45 degrees on Friday in Sarasota. But at home they are getting snow and had an earthquake. I guess they needed a little shaking up.

I love your work and would like to learn this technique. I hope you come to Grand Rapids sometime soon. It's not that far away.

I second what West Michigan Quilter posted. I would love to get a chance to take a class with you in Grand Rapids!

Given that we are having earthquakes and snow and general gloom, the photos of these two works are just the pick-me-up I needed today. Thank you for such a cheerful, gorgeous blog.
