The July issue of American Quilter has hit the stands. Besides the beautiful winning quilts from the AQS shows there is a great article on page 40 by Michele Byrum. She explains how she uses commercial prints (non-typical to say the least) for her beautiful floral applique. I've taken a few classes from her and if you ever have an opportunity to learn from her, do it. Michele allows me the privilege of "quilters choice" when it comes to working on her quilts....and that is why my name is on the credits. I'm honored, and excited.
