I guess I'm a teacher at heart 'cause I love to teach. Put me in a room with some fabric lovin' quilters and it's a banner day....and that's just what I had on Sunday! Eighteen of the most delightful ladies from the Eastern Polk Quilter's Guild and I spent the day talking shop. We worked on skill building and honing quilting techniques.
At the end our time together, I had fun doing what I love and they learned some new tricks of the trade.
On Monday evening I was given a warm Iowa welcome from all the members of the Eastern Polk Quilter's Guild!

They listened to my program about, among other things, the most useful quilting secrets, hints and tips I know (and wrestled from other quilting professionals!), as well as my (now almost famous) starch recipe for how I prepare my fabrics for piecing.
