Guild Guest Speaker- Sew Fresh Quilts

Today at my guild 'Quaker Quilters Guild we had a guest speaker Lorna of Sew Fresh Quilts. I have been following Lorna's blog for a few years and have even tested for her. What a pleasure to meet her in person!

Lorna of Sew Fresh Quilts and me

She is a wonderful speaker, everyone commented on how much they enjoyed her trunk show. She brought humour and knowledge along with her many quilts.  She readily shared some of her techniques, such as how she does her wavy line quilting using a walking foot. She is one talented lady! An interesting fact I didn't know she was a welder before a quilter. Seeing her designs and quilts up close was a real treat. 

A small sampling of the quilts she brought along today.

I am so jealous that you had Lorna - would love to have seen these in person. Have done several of her patterns.

oh that looks like a good fun day. I have always loved Lorna's quilts, how lovely to see them and meet her in person. Is being a welder first a huge jump, or not such a big change as it seems? I wonder!
