Two Tip Tuesday – student success

I LOVE getting photos of my student’s progress and even finished quilts!  Last week on Sew Central’s FaceBook page (Sew Central is in Merritt Island, FL)  one of my students finished quilts from the Babes on the Beach Retreat was featured.  I’m so excited about this Twirl-A-Tool quilt for several reasons.  1- it is done!,  2- it is beautiful!, 3- it is set straight! (instead of on-point like the cover quilt).  Take a look at Susan’s quilt…wonderful!

I also received a text and email from two students from my Belknap Guild workshop… Ila, I love the “masculine” colors you choose and happy for your progress!  And Noreen, I love the “fresh” look with the green background!

I taught Twirl-ATool again last week for the Village Quilters  of Cantonsville, Maryland.  I quickly snapped a few photos before they packed up there things after class.  (I’m sorry I didn’t do this for Belknap group.  But hoping to see some more finished quilts in the near future…hint, hint)




































Don’t ya love the explosion of colors?!?  I sure do!

#1- It goes to prove, go with the colors you like and success will be yours!

#2- and a don’t….don’t get caught up in copying cover quilts.  Put your “twirl” on it!

in quilting,
