Jean, I am in awe of your quilts that I viewed at the Madison, WI Sept. 2012 show. If I could only accomplish 20% of your skills, I could die happy. I have only been quilting/sewing for 6 months, so there is sooo much to learn. I wish you would bless us in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan with a teaching class and exhibit of your accomplishments. We get very little education here.
