In two days I leave for Victor, NY. My destination is the Ivy Thimble Quilt Shop, I will lecture and teach. Check out their website at: http://www.ivythimble.com/ My class is called Laura’s 1870s Cradle Quilt http://www.quiltsremembered.com/shop/Quilt-Patterns/p/Lauras-1870-Cradle-Quilt-1014.htm. This is a sweet quilt with lots of pieces. It is inspired by an antique quilt my friend Laura owns (hence the name). I am very lucky to be able to have the antique piece with me for the event. Trish is the owner of Ivy Thimble and her blog address is: http://ivythimble.blogspot.com/
There is still so much left to do to get ready. (I shouldn't take this time to write.)

My lecture will cover several topics including a few demos using some of my favorite tools. We are lucky as quilters; there are so many tools available. But, sometimes because there are so many, we get confused to which ones will do the best job for us. I always tell my beginner students, “It is just what you get used to”. In fact, starting with the best tools just makes life easier. You can visit my website, www.QuiltsRemembered.com to view my ‘tools’ page and see some of my favorites.
