I just got back from THE QUILT SHOP ON THE CORNER in Augusta, Georgia, where I will be teaching in April and May.  Kathy, the owner of the shop had this really neat antique ironing board in her store and it was perfect for my THINK PINK display.  Click on the picture to see it up close...if you go to the MY SCHEDULE section of the website you will see which of these Think Pink classes are on the schedule in the upcoming months.  There is also a pink lap size quilt called TOMORROW'S HOPE that I will be teaching in May.  So if you are anywhere near the Augusta, Georgia area, be sure to stop in at THE QUILT SHOP ON THE CORNER and check it out.

There are several displays at THE QUILT SHOP ON THE CORNER and this little one is the MACHINE APPLIQUE PRIMER 101 class.  This class is designed for those of you who want to learn to Machine Applique and really need to start at the beginning and get all the little tips and techniques per your machine.  When you start with a Primer class like this one, you spend your lesson on the essentials of Machine Applique, so you are not becoming frustrated by trying to actually "applique" a full project.  We deal with shapes of all kinds, convex and concave curves, sharp points, and how to start and stop your applique.  I have a short lecture at the beginning of class about the products and textiles used in Machine Applique and explain in detail the importance of laying the "ground" work in getting started with the whole process.   This class has been one of my most popular sessions and it continues to be so.   Join this class, and see how successful you really can be in Machine Applique.

I also have a small PATRIOTIC display up at the shop, so we can find out exactly what the stores customers and students want to see on the upcoming class calendar, so be sure to check that out too.  The AMERICAN DREAMS is a flag wall hanging that deals with both piecing and machine applique.  I designed this quilt for my sister Angela who loves it dearly, but has graciously allowed me to use it in my store displays for a bit.  Aren't sisters great?  Actually, she may have forgotten that I have it still, so shhh...don't remind her!
