Teaching at DCMQG

On November 4, I had the pleasure of taking the train down to Washington DC to teach a workshop with the DCMQG. Upon my arrival at Union Station opposite the Capitol, I was reminded of the graceful beauty of the city. Curves were definitely the right motif for this trip.

We made quarter circles and to form Trill quilt onion shapes. Since I had given the original Trill away, I made a new top in black and white and left the seams exposed for teaching purposes.

 Students got to pick from several designs to work on. We talked about fabric, precision techniques, how to deal with boredom in repetition, and how to conquer those pesky hang ups that hold us back. Everyone came with an open mind and I loved the group’s enthusiasm. Check out everyone’s different fabric choices!

Thank you so much for such wonderful hospitality and company.
