After much anticipation and planning, it was finally time for members of the guild to enjoy the talents of Linda M Poole for a few days.
On Thursday, the class was the Acorn Wreath.
Most of the participants showed off their work at the meeting yesterday.
On Friday, the class was the Monarch Butterfly.
And here are some of them the next day, when some have gone home and added to their work.
Linda is a fun and patient teacher...
..happy to sit down and get you started on something you're having trouble with, while making sure the whole class can get the same information.
At her lecture on Saturday, she shared some stories about how she got started in quilting, showed a wonderful selection of quilts made from pictures taken on vacations- made by Linda and other quilters- as well as a great trunk show of her own work.

|This is the ladybug fairy- who gives them their spots!|
|Linda also wrote a book on using bias tape|

The technique we learned is from Linda's "Painted Appliqué" book. She shows some of the projects in both traditional and painted appliqué. In these two pictures, you can see the same quilt made both ways.
We are lucky the guild is able to present teachers like Linda! If you'd like to be there for the next one, it's easy to become a member of the guild
Pictures of the October show and tell will be in the next post.
