Introducing the 2013 TQS Block of the Month designed by Sue Nickels and Pat Holly! It's called "TWO OF US" and was created by the two of them. The quilt measures 79" x 79" and was completed just in time for Houston.
This weekend I had the great fortune to take classes from Sue Nickels at the North Carolina Quilt Symposium! (Raw edge appliqué and machine quilting). Both classes were outstanding! Content-rich, well organized, and with the best demos I've ever had in a quilt class (she uses a video camera and projector so every student has a perfect view). Besides all that, she is a really nice person. In one class she had some action photos of her quilting the BOM!
I thought I would share my photo op with you...I feel like my block has now been blessed! I made her aware of the show and tell for the BOM, and she said that she'll try to check it out in the coming months, since the next 4 months will all be Sue's appliqué borders.
BTW, for those who are too far away to attend class with Sue in person, she now has some classes on creativebug, which is a Craftsy-type online learning site.
