Lorain County Piecemakers "Making Faces" workshopYesterday morning I had the priviledge of teaching a “Making Faces” workshop for the Lorain County Piecemakers, and then I spoke at their guild in the evening. We had such a fun time!

These are a few of the portraits that were made yesterday. A couple of others were still putting on the finishing touches so I don’t have completed photos of those yet. The workshop was small and personal: lots of laughing and joking, coffee, and good questions.

In the evening I did a trunk show for the guild. I even brought some of my earliest quilts (one from 1985 and one from 1991) so we could all have a good laugh. Then I talked about the different things I’ve experimented with through the years.

Thank you to the Lorain County Piecemakers and to Sandra, who did all of the organization for the workshop! I really enjoyed my time with you.

After the meeting, DH & I made the long 3-1/2 hour drive home since he prefers driving at night. Very nice ride. No traffic, no slowdowns. We got home around midnight and lugged in everything from the car. Now I need to put all this stuff away. Why is it my life always ends in piles? But, at least these are good piles!

    I enjoyed your presentation at our guild meeting, Maria. Your quilts are simply extraordinary. Thank you for coming! I was especially drawn to your Ohio quilt – the folds of the Ohio Star “blanket” amazed me with the precise perspective; truly amazing.

    Thanks Maria, I feel like a celeb with my little quilt on your page. We loved the class and learning your technique. I will have to make one of all my grandchildren. Whew. And my once pristine gingher embroidery scissors are now slated just for this job!

      Be sure to send me pictures of the other quilts you make. I’d love to see them all 🙂
