A little of this, a little of that

Karen Ann Buckley has a beautiful post on her blog that includes photographs from her trip to Charlevoix, Michigan.  She even has a photo taken on the channel of the condo my parents used to own.  I love the Charlevoix area… and all of northern Michigan.  If it weren’t for the tons of snow in the winter, you could easily persuade me to move up there.  Thanks for the pictures, Karen!  DSC03585

Would you believe I have never taken a quilt class before?  Oh, I’ve taught lots of classes, but never TAKEN one.  I had an opportunity to take a class with quilt portrait specialist Aniko Feher on Monday, and I loved it!    She taught us the basic methods of shading, positioning, shading with watercolor pencils and so much more.  I learned a lot and brought my little sample class projecthome to finish it.  I’m going to do a second portrait using my mother’s photo, and I’m excited about that.  Thanks for the class, Aniko!

Don’t forget about the giveaway at Michigan Quilts! 

The drawing in July 4th, so you have a few weeks left to enter.

One thought on “A little of this, a little of that

  1. This looks like a great class – I've never taken one either, I would love to. When I started quilting, I didn't know about quilt guilds, the sewing expo, anything. It was just me and the fabrics, and every single quilt book at the libraries.
