Saturday February 16th I am teaching Connect the Dot Design for the Quilter's Pot Luck at Davies Manor Plantation in Bartlett, Tennessee. There will also be a demonstration of Visual Piecing.
Included is all class materials and handouts for creating your own unique designs as easily as you did those pictures in childhood by connecting the dots!
See you there.
Just a note - there is NO SOUND on the slides!

Travel Sketch



While out of town this weekend I found myself sitting with the breakfast crowd in the hotel. I pulled out the iPad and opened the Paper app and sketched the salt and pepper shakers. What else was there to do?
Thank You Mary Pal for introducing me to this great app. Paper on iTunes
