Golden Needles Quilt Guild

Last week I gave my trunk show and taught 2 days of classes for the Golden Needles Quilt Guild in Conroe, TX.  This was my 3rd visit to their guild and I am always delighted to visit with them.  I live south of Houston and Conroe is north of Houston.  Houston is a very large city so I make it an overnight event when visiting the Golden Needlers!  This year my hostess was LouAnn and she took very good care of me.

She and her husband had just moved into this home in the spring.  The selling factor for LouAnn was the studio – and I have to agree with her – it is FABULOUS!

The workshop they chose was Cactus Flower Table Runner, normally a 1 day workshop.  I must say by the 2nd day they were off and running on their own.  I helped pull papers so they could do more curved piecing!  I am scheduled to teach this workshop one more time this year at the Baytown Area Quilt Guild, Tuesday, October 7.

By lunch on day one most students had 4 M units done.  Here is a compilation from a few of the students.

And 4 of Ginger's blocks.  Hoping for fall should be the title for this one as it was 100 degrees outside!

When we drove up to the venue for the workshop I was a little surprised.

But one step inside and it was a very happy place!

Be sure to stop by the Coastal Prairie Quilt show, Stafford, TX on September 12 &13.  I will have a vendor booth there, but most importantly are all of the beautiful quilts that will be there.

Want me to come visit your guild?  Send me a note.

Now to sew!
