AQS Syracuse - a fantastic blur!

What an awesome week - teaching at AQS Quiltweek Syracuse was an absolute blast!  My classes were filled with some of the most awesome students - it was a good mix of over-achievers, quilties, and newbies.

An almost full house in my Build-A-Stitch class -- these ladies had some fun creating their own unique stitches!!

And look at these awesome projects from my Effortless Trapunto class - these ladies did fabulous!

Day 2 started with Piece & Applique the Longarm Way - we were having so much fun I forgot to take pics of the finished projects.

And then one of my favorite classes - Spontaneous Art Quilt -

These ladies were totally in their creative zones:

After class I managed to get over to the show for a few minutes.  I found my Wicked Challenge hanging with the Cherrywood Exhibit - yay!

And then on Friday everyone was in Feathers and Fills -- it was fun!

And my last class was Big Border Breakdowns -- unfortunately, there was so much creative thought going on that I totally forgot to take pictures!

I did manage to walk the show in full on Saturday afternoon. There were some amazing quilts - congratulations to all the winners. Here are some of my favorites:

And I spent a few minutes in the Gammill booth, of course! What you can't see is the AQS cameraman -- can't wait to see the Tips & Tricks segment we filmed -- wondering how tongue-tied I was as I don't remember even speaking!

Oh, and I almost forgot... there was a feature article about ME in the Show Book, tell me that's not absolute awesomness -- here's a pic:

It was an amazing Quiltweek!! I'll be teaching with AQS again in March 2016 at Lancaster, PA. You can follow along my teaching schedule on my website.

  1. It is interesting seeing so many longarms in one room. Were these provided by vendors?
