I took 7 classes at MQS:
Filling in the Fillers DeLoa Jones
Lions and Tigers and Templates, Oh My! Kim Brunner
Frameworks Diana Phillips
It’s More Than ‘Just” Edge to Edge Kim Brunner
Glorious Gridwork and Fillers Gina Perkes
Sampler Solutions Deloa Jones
Border Designs in Half the Time Dawn Cavanaugh
I also won the door prize at 3 of the 7. How lucky is that? Especially since not every class had a door prize? I won the book “Frameworks” in Diana Phillips’ class, a ruler in DeLoa Jones’ Sampler class and the stitch out that Gina Perkes worked on in her Gridwork class.
I enjoyed every class and always learn something. It is also true that I learn from every quilt I work on. I plan to make a stitch out of some of the patterns and techniques to help me retain all the ideas.
I had an intuition that I would need two beds in my hotel room. There was one possible roommate, who decided she couldn’t make the trip, then Leslie posted on APQS Forums that her travel partner had to cancel and she was looking for a roommate. That worked out well and I attended the Awards Ceremony and the Audacious Auction with her and compared notes on classes and vendors in the evenings.
It was a great 4 day trip and I look forward to next year. I was awed and inspired by the beautiful quilts, and enjoyed rubbing shoulders with the quilters.
