MQX 2015

Even though I do not like to fly, it is hard not to appreciate the beauty from up above.

I convinced my sister Amy that she needed to come with me to MQX and I am so glad she came.  She was incredible and the best help to me.  She even force fed me in the mornings, you'll have to ask her about that. ;-)

I was worried about making sure I had time to adjust to the time difference, so we flew in a day before I was supposed to be there for the Ice Cream Social at MQX.  We got a chance to enjoy Boston for a little bit and I thoroughly enjoyed the Boston Tea Party Museum.  I love history! 

I also love being to enjoy the textures and quilting inspirations that can be found everywhere! 

The best part of teaching is being able to quilt!  I love being able to share what I know and have my students try it out and gain confidence in their own quilting. 

I taught 9 classes at MQX - three hands-on and 6 lecture demo.  

I really can't thank you all enough for coming out.  I had the best students and they made me feel so welcome.  Really, thank you!  I am humbled to know that you wanted to take my classes. It's so surreal most of the time to realize where quilting has taken me, but I couldn't have gotten here without the encouragement from all of you.  So again, thank you!

I was able to meet Lisa Calle - she is so amazing, talented and really, really nice.  So lovely to meet her. 

Of course, Helen and Jenny were there and we had the best time together.  I seriously love these girls!  It was fun having dinner as our sister duo.  Let's make it happen again girls at HMQS

This pizza was a welcome sight after a week of salads and granola bars.  It was just what we needed to celebrate the last day of class.  Thanks again Amy, you are the best! 

I want to come back, seriously.  Maybe next year?

In the meantime, I am preparing to leave for Paducah next week. I am sneaking in some quilting too.  Watch for my next post on the progress of my newest design, Bohemian.
