Small Town Quilt Show Recap

A couple weekends ago I had the opportunity of teaching a great group of women at the Small Town Quilt Show in Midway, Utah. I taught Improv Piecing, which I love. I especially enjoyed the chance to teach this class locally for me as that meant bringing more quilts to share in person. After teaching this class a couple times now, I'm learning many things to improve the class. I'm not sure I'll have another opportunity to teach this again, but I would love to have the chance.

Luckily, my laptop played nicely with the projector. My little netbook is OLD and slow. I was worried it might not handle things well, but it all worked out.

I filled a suitcase full of quilts. I included pictures of all my quilts in my presentation, but quilts are always so much better in person.

Working away on improv piecing.

On a whim I asked a few fabric companies to donate "small" bundles to giveaway in my class. And did they ever come through! Robert KaufmanArt GalleryRJR Fabrics and Timeless Treasures each sent a few bundles for me to giveaway during my class. I still have one or two bundles left over which I'll be giving away in the next week or two. Check out my Instagram feed later today! I'll be giving away one bundle on there. I'll be sharing another fabric giveaway here on the blog next week.

The winners with their prizes!


  1. Your Improv Piecing class sounds fantastic. I'm glad it went well and that your laptop did its job. Have you ever considered teaching an online class? Craftsy perhaps? Then I can participate!
