Busy weekend @ NW Quilt Expo

Up early Thursday morning for what turned into a two hour drive into Portland.  Totally miscalculated the time to drive all the way across the city.  This was my first experience teaching free motion quilting on the long arm, let alone three classes per day for three days.  Oh, my feet!!
All of the students were great, willing to explore their first time hands on or just try new things.  With an hour between classes to reload machines and get things ready I didn't have much time to explore the show.

This is the snowflake quilt I quilted for Michele (click on the picture for a closer view).  It won a 2nd place in the Free Motion category....Yay US!!!

Now to finish writing instructions and patterns for a project I can tell you about at a future date and get a deadline quilt finished before Sept 30...sounds easy, right?
NEXT UP...Quilt retreat at Silver Falls Conference Center.  I can hardly wait!!!
