Next September, I will be giving a Trunk Show and a Workshop for the Miami Quilt Guild in Miami, Oklahoma. I am really looking forward to it. The Trunk Show will feature quilts that I have made using Quilt in a Day patterns, the philosophy of Quilt in a Day patterns, and a little about my quilting journey. As I wrote in my 2017 New Quilt Bloggers Blog Hop feature, I credit Eleanor Burns with teaching me how to machine piece accurately and efficiently. In addition, I am a Quilt in a Day Certified Teacher. I earned that distinction last September in Paducah, Kentucky. I do not receive compensation from Quilt in a Day. However, the training has prepared me to offer quality workshops using their methods.
I see that Eleanor is offering new certification workshops, so if you are interested, Here is a link to more information. I highly recommend the training, I see that the 2017 Paducah Training is sold out, but you may be able to get into the California training later in the year..
The Miami Quilt Guild has requested that I teach the Apple Bag workshop. In this three-hour workshop, they will learn how to make the Apple Cake block from Quilt in a Day's Apple Cake Quilt pattern by making an Apple Bag which includes one of the blocks. Then they will know how to make additional apple blocks for the entire quilt on their own. (I can also teach the entire quilt, but that workshop is more than three hours in length.) The Apple Bag would make a nice gift for your favorite teacher! A photo of my sample bag is below.
I am a quilter who is starting a new adventure. After retiring in May 2016, I became a certified Quilt in a Day Instructor. I am certified to teach workshops using Quilt in a Day patterns and techniques. In addition, I am designing my own quilt patterns.
