Deep in the Heart of Texas

I grew up in Dallas, so I always jump at the chance to head “home”. Plus this time I was visiting two of my favorite groups, the McKinney MQG and Stitched with Love. This guild is full of talented quilters! We made Hattie’s Dresden for the workshop and the range of awesome work was…just wow!!

I’m a sucker for a color wheel!! Seriously, almost any pattern looks amazing in color order form.

And I’m loving this low volume version. I’d never seen Hattie’s in neutrals!

Sarah made these beauties and posed with Lori! She’s planning on making it into a tote with one dresden on each side.

Scrappy works well with Hattie’s. This palette is so bright and fresh.

I love when students bring in pretties made with my patterns! Check out this Line It Up Tote

And Designer Star!

Such a wonderful two toned version! Ellen already finished her quilt and you can read more about it here.

More scrappy fun!! I seriously wanted to steal this one! She pulled some excellent scraps and even mixed in different substrates.

Gorgeous spring flowers! Love the accent pieces in the middle.

Another gorgeous color wheel!

Sweet Alice and Catherine gifted me this awesome tee! It’s sparkly:)

This cutie also appeared in class!

I had a mini trunk show for some of my best friends. Thanks Em J for being the quilt holder. This one is Georgia’s Dresden.

Plus I ate excessive tacos and guacamole.

I even slept under a Designer Star quilt made by The Guru’s best friend (and my second Mom!), Sue. This one was quilted by my sweet friend, Sheri.

It’s always great to go back home!

  1. You know I had to giggle as I read this post. First I was attracted because I like Dresdans. Then I saw the shape and the name and all I could think of was making one of these and plopping it on my little grandbaby’s head, for the fun of it, like a little “hat”. Then I scroll along and see the two women standing with the dresdans behind their heads, looking like they are wearing a hat!! I think I may have to buy this pattern :)

  2. Love seeing daughter Emily hold up your beautiful art. You are going to have to come stay long enough to give her a lesson!
