Total fun!

This past week I was at MQS (Machine Quilters Showcase) in Overland Park, KS. I took a few classes, one of which was with Angela Walters that was a really fun class, I learned lots, she is a great teacher, thanks Angela!  I was also lucky to be #2 in the line to get a free signed copy of her book that is coming out in June, 2012. An awesome book.  So yesterday I designed this modern looking table runner, which I am calling Mod Dots(modern dots) pieced the background and appliqued the circles on using the interfacing method, it was easy peasy. Today was really fun quilting some of the designs from Angela's class/book.  I used Hobbs 80/20 batting and Glide thread.


This gold circle and orange circle are my favorite designs.

  12. I took a class from Angela Walters on Wed at MQS. She was a fun teacher and her ideas are inspirational. I like how you designed this table runner to practice what you learned. I have a denim quilt on my machine that I am using some of her ideas.
