It really is Spring!

I think it finally is. We made it through St.Patrick's Day without the usual heavy snow. It's time to dust my motorcycle, change the oil, check the battery and decide where the first ride will be to. I'm thinking maybe a little quilt shop in Dunkirk, NY. Quilted Memories is one of my favorite shops, although I don't get there very often. They have a great fabric collection. I always wish I had brought more money when I visit.

Maybe I'll put together my own little shop hop. I don't think I've been to the Carriage Quilt Shop. There is also the Quilt Farm and the Calico Cat. Route 5 is such a beautiful ride also. It runs along Lake Erie all the way up to Buffalo.

I'm teaching at Millcreek Vac & Sew in May. May 2 is my Floral Delight class. I used the Benartex Flower Show II for my version, but it works well with any large floral print. On May 23rd I'll be teaching Ravishing Rayven. I have a new Great Niece, Rayven Rose. I designed this quilt for her. My Niece, Rayven's mother Kat, does not like pink though so we went with a Black/White/Red version.

That is exactly the right sort of quilt design for the lovely magnolia fabric. I saw some the other day and thought a lattice style quilt would work well with that. Looks really nice.

I wish I could be one of your students. Do you have any online classes?

I am not doing online classes yet, but it's a great idea and I will look into it.
