Claudia Pfeil…

May 8, 2016

I had the opportunity to take a class with the International Award Winning Quilter, Claudia Pfeil yesterday morning!  Her quilting is amazing and I aspire to quilt like she does…  (Plus she brought chocolate!  She’s my favorite teacher ever!  LOL!)


This was her entrance in HMQS…  Amazing quilting and color!  And who doesn’t like bling?!!!

100_1204This is a closeup of her quilting…  Now that I’ve had her class I should be able to quilt like her, right?!

LOLOLOLOL…!  I am a funny girl!

100_1166Here is Claudia showing us how to do her “Onions”…  I must practice more!  (Check out that design on the right…  It’s from her “A-Z” class!)

100_1167A close up so you can see how amazing it is!

And last but not least, here is the piece that I was working on in our “Bubbles” class…


Now, I haven’t done any show quilting on my midarm, so this was a new experience for me.  I usually do show quilting on my Bernina domestic machine as I have a lot more control.  Hopefully I will be able to experiment and get good like this on the longarm…  🙂  Claudia said the 3 P’s of quilting are Practice, practice, practice…  I intend to follow that advice!  Thanks for an awesome class Claudia!  Next year I’m going to take her A-Z class.  Wish I had taken it this year!

Thanks for visiting…


Another Post on UQG’s Quilt Festival…

There really was too much fun going on at Quilt Fest to only post once!

127_0705The luncheons are always such fun!  Left to right:  Sheri, Pam (behind Sheri), Jane, Denise, Vivian, Patsy, and Diane!  We were the rowdy table…

127_0709Denise and Vivian…

127_0707Pam and Jane!

127_0736I made all of these fun things in Deonn’s class…  She can be found at  This was in her “Snippets” class.  The kits were a.w.e.s.o.m.e.  Everything was already cut out so all we had to do is sew!  Thanks Deonn!!!  (Deonn and I met online in a flickr house swap.  I run into her at different quilting events around the valley.  She is so fun in person!)

And the last class I took was Emily’s “7 Sisters”!

127_0740Look what I got finished!  (Okay, I worked on it at home too, but still a quick finish!)

Emily is in one of my local guilds and she is such a talent!  She can be found at

We have a lot of fabulous quilters around here…  Both Emily and Deonn have had the covers of different magazines!

And I suppose I should show you my Fair Challenge Quilt…

127_0727The challenge fabric is the white with all the colored circles…  Those colored circles were great inspiration!

Thanks for stopping by!  (p.s. Poukie is such a ham!)

Getting ready…

August 6, 2014

I’ll be teaching my “Retractable Tape Measure” at the Utah Quilt Guild Annual Meeting in September…  I’ve been prepping my kits for the class.

I decided to prepare the paper pieced sections before the class for anyone who wants to simply focus on sewing the pattern together…  I’m doing a few

extra patterns so that the students have some fun choices…  These are 2 of the 4 patterns that I’ll be offering them!  Of course, there has to be a cat!

Apparently my knots are a little unruly.

Thanks for stopping by!
