A Light-hearted Look at Appliqué Quilts by Sandy Fitzpatrick

Gotta Love Machine Applique

What a great class and a great group of ladies I was able to spend time with in February!  The ladies of the Meherrin Quilt Guild in Emporia, Virginia were such fun and so easy to work with. It's always wonderful to be able to share my machine applique tips and techniques with ladies so willing to learn. We were able to accomplish so much because they were so well prepared and knew how to use their machines! I know this sounds funny but I often have students who come to class with a machine they recently purchased and don't really know how to thread their machine or wind a bobbin. Using my Gorgeous Gourds pattern, these ladies came up with some beautiful fabric combinations.

We also had a great lunch provided by one of the guild members. Delicious chicken, twice baked potatoes, carrot salad, bean salad, and delicious dessert of cherry cobbler all made in their on-site kitchen! It smelled so yummy as it was cooking and was so, so good!

Thanks ladies for such a wonderful day!
