Busy Week!

Stack the Deck Revisited

Quilters Crossing hosted two workshops taught by the talented and fun Karla Alexander.  Karla has six published books and her seventh is in the works! Her latest Stack the Deck Revisted is pictured here at the right----------------------->
She spoke at Tri County Quilt Guild on Tuesday night and she had us all laughing and crying as she shared her quilting journey from her childhood watching her mother quilt to her adult life as a professional quilt designer and teacher. 
She had some fun techniques and she gave us all a lot of confidence  for cutting, sewing  and pressing curves.
It turns out that neither Karla or I really like having our picture taken so we tried to cover up with her quilts:
 Not sure why she doesn't like having her picture taken??? She is so photogenic and SHE kept her eyes open! True to form I didn't. 
On Wednesday night Quilters Crossing was the "Spotlight Shop" at the Woodlands Quilt Guild's monthly meeting.
We were allowed to hand out coupons and freebies and we were allowed to give a little information about the highlights of our shop. 
We really enjoyed the meeting which even had refreshments. The guild President Debbie Shelton makes a delicious Wassail!   Our thanks to them for the warm welcome. The speaker was Karen McTavish:
Who entertained us all with her humorous trial-by-fire entry into the quilting world.  
My camera did something weird here- maybe it is starting to show people's auras? I don't know... sorry. But this quilt was beautiful.
So we had a really star studded week! And to top it all off it is supposed to snow tonight!
