Bev's Geese Went to Quilting Class

Hi all - - well, while many of you 'flew' off to Houston and had a wonderful time, I took advantage of a great class on machine quilting by Jill Schumacher, a California machine-quilting artist.
The two-day class, on machine-quilting design, was taught at a lovely LQS in Livermore, CA. It required that we show up with a finished top ready to quilt... so I took along a little flimsy that began from some flying geese blocks made by my friend Bev Bennett of the Yahoo Sunshine Quilt Guild... Bev passed away a few months ago, and some friends distributed her stash to members of the online guild... and I got these flying geese blocks... and then they began to tell me what needed to go with them... and this emerged...........


So - here's the quilt, all marked for machine quilting... and just barely begun to be quilted... this will be the first time I have done machine quilting beyond the basic stuff like stippling and straight lines ... should be fun!

Great class, Jill! And I love these flying geese, Bev...

What a cute quilt, glad you enjoyed yourself. It is so fun to go outside yourself and know that you are capable of more...that is super!

Those blocks you added to Bev's really make an adorable quilt. You'll love it and the memories it brings for you. Congrats on taking a class and I know someone who would be cheering you on at doing that! (that little cheerleader that kept us all going just a bit beyond what we already were doing!)
