It has been a couple of week since the MQG Portland Sewdown, but I still want to tell you all how wonderful an event it was. I wish that I could attend the Nashville one in April! I have made several quilts and I have sewn for a long time and, yes, I learned a few new things! My favorite class was Heather Jones’ class You + Me. She is a lovely person inside and out and you could feel that through her teaching. I made one portion of the quilt in class (which is shown in the photo of myself and Lauren Lang) and have almost finished the rest at home.
The committee who put together the event did a great job lining up interesting lectures. Learning about an artist’s way of developing a collection intrigued me. Both Violet Craft and Valori Wells’ lectures on the subject were captivating. I can’t wait to make something with both of their up coming collections.
I found the women who attended the best part of the entire weekend. I was throughly exhausted during and afterwards because my creativity was pushed and spent! I hope I can keep in touch with all of my new friends and see them again. Maybe at QuiltCon next February?
