Ahhhhh, back home.

I got to go back to the place that makes me smile and allows me to breath just a little deeper and makes me feel calm and serene, Wyoming. This past weekend I had the chance to teach at Quilt Wyoming 2014. It is the annual state wide quilt convention and this was my second year teaching at this event.  Last year I taught a class utilizing 2 1/2 inch strips and found that I am not the only one who loves the pre-cuts.  One of my students sent me a photo of her finished project and I just have to share because who doesn’t want a little visual and virtual recognition for their work.  Here is Betty with her quilt.

Lyn's pinwheel quilt2I am from Wyoming originally and being back in that state just brings me a sense of warmth and support that I can’t describe.  Being there around the ladies that supported me when I first started quilting has given me the confidence to break into the teaching realm of quilting and I’m not looking back.  I submitted class proposals for a couple of years before being accepted and even still this year I had one of my classes that was canceled due to lack of participants, but I will keep trying because of the support that I have now not only in Wyoming but here too with my quilting friends in Colorado.  

The class this past weekend brought a little bit of a modern feel to it but was rooted in traditional piecing and construction.  We worked on a hexagon quilt and despite a major pattern mess-up progress was made, fun was had, a few tips were learned.  I just got a new phone and I forgot my camera (again big surprise) so these are just the very few photos that I could figure out how to take.
