Small Town Quilt Show

I'm so excited for the Small Town Quilt Show coming up next weekend! I will be teaching Improv Piecing. Registration for most classes is still available. The show is in Midway, Utah, which is a beautiful, small town in the mountains about an hour from Salt Lake City. I'll be teaching several different techniques in my class, including my circle piecing technique I used in my Whirlpool Quilt.


I contacted a few of my favorite fabric companies to send a few items for giveaways in my class. They were each more than generous. Robert Kaufman, Art Gallery, RJR Fabrics and Timeless Treasures each sent a few bundles for me to giveaway during my class. I just might have one or two leftover after the class to giveaway here as well! A huge thanks to each of this great companies for their help for this event!

 In addition to classes there will be a great quilt show. Because I'm teaching, I decided to enter a couple quilts. This is a huge change for me as I swore a couple years ago I wouldn't do it again. I'm entering my Whirlpool Quilt and Jumbo Star Quilt. We'll see how it goes. I have one more sleeve to sew on before I deliver them this weekend. 

I'll be spending next week preparing and going over all my material for the class. I can't wait to share how it goes! Several readers have mentioned a desire for me to do a tutorial or online class about the Whirlpool Quilt. I'm still debating on how that might work and the best way to go about it. It's much easier to teach hands-on, in person. I wish you could all come next weekend!

  1. If only Midway was a little closer to Albuquerque, I'd be sure to come. Good for you getting back on the horse and entering a couple quilts. Your giveaway items look awesome, and I do hope you will decide to do a tut on the whirlpool quilt.
