Madrigal Class Part Two

Hello Everyone,

I was at the shop yesterday teaching the second part of the Madrigal class.  The girls worked so hard over the last month!  I was so impressed with their results.  Judy introduced aqua blue into her quilt creating a wonderful contrast with the gold and blacks.  You would never know that she is new to applique when you looked at her flower basket.

A gorgeous, simply gorgeous creation.

There were flanges being sewn on all over the room......

......all over scissors......

....and calculators.

Row by row, these lovely quilts were coming alive.

Applique was in the preparation process.

Blocks were starting to be displayed on the design wall.

Kathy used her embroidery machine to create this absolutely beautiful Geisha for her center section.  It blew us away!

More baskets.......

More color.......

More blocks......

Ann is using the beautiful Luna Notte fabric line for her quilt.  The same that I used.

The colors and Geisha in Kathy's quilt were breathtaking.

She fussy cut each and every block!

This is my reward for being a new quilt designer and instructor.  I get to spend two days with a wonderful group of ladies that take my design and magically transform it into a work of art.  Thank you all!

As always,



  1. What a feeling you must have had seeing your design come alive in so many ways by so many talented quilters! How I would have loved to be a bird up in the rafters that day! I hope we get to see all the finishes at some point!

  2. I love to see the different fabric selections people make. I often love the teachers quilt so much that I want to use the same fabrics. That's what inspires me to make the quilt. Thanks for sharing your photo's. The quilt is beautiful.

  3. Hi, so I am working on my pillow
    And I have my picture of my family ready to go and was wondering if I iron it on a piece of fabric or leave it. Thanks for your help
