We were immersed in a week of machine quilting, and I tell you, Sue KNOWS her machine quilting! Her work is wonderful! I've had short classes with her in the past, but it's been some time. Her work was beautiful then and her skills have increased tenfold since. You can see some of her work here, but photos don't do it justice. Both sisters have multiple quilts in the Quilt Museum in Paducah.
I think this small piece below was a gift to her sister, Pat. (photo includes my feet, no extra charge!)
I cannot rave enough about the great job Sue and Pat did. So many wonderful hand-outs I will treasure and look at each & every time I plan quilting on a quilt-top. They love all parts of the process, and hopefully I will now slow down and try to enjoy the quilting as much as I love the piecing. I have the skills, just need the patience.
Now, just pics for you to enjoy.....
