Just a little bragging

I just received this email from one of my students at PIQF. I just had to share.
If you can’t crow about yourself sometimes – who can!!

I attended your class, Sunset Pines, at PIQF this year and was totally delighted with my experience in your classroom.  Your class was fun, informative, and quite inspirational.  I have never made a fused art quilt before and found your techniques, fabrics, and patterns very well done. 

The class was fun and well lead.  When I first got into your classroom, I was a bit nervous about working "frie style" with my cutting and piecing, but I was willing to give it a try.  By the end of the class, I actually did feel much freer with my work and was having a good time without stress.  I also saw that there probably aren't any mistakes with this type of project, just more design opportunities.  I completed fusing the trees on my background the next day.  I still need to quilt it, but I'm sure this project won't end up in my UFO stack.

This was one of the very best classes I've ever taken at PIQF.  I hope you will come back again next year.  I will be sure to sign up for whatever you teach in the future.

Thanks for a great experience in 2012.

How nice! We all need a nice comment every so often to make our day. The quilt is just as beautiful as the kind words she wrote. I'm smiling for you!

Doesn't surprise me one bit. I attended one of your lectures in Southern California last year. I didn't intend to try fusing, but after your talk, I changed my mind. (Your workshop the next day was sold out.) I purchased a pattern and a friend and I had a ball with your techniques and beautiful fabrics. I would definitely recommend one of your lectures/workshops for some stress-free fun and learning. Hope you come back to SoCal soon.

What a wonderful letter. You must be a great instructor in person. I've learned so much from you on the blog alone, that I would jump at the chance to take one of your classes.
