The first time I met Barbara was in my Getting Started With Quiltart class at academyofquilting.com. She had decided to join my workshop to break away from traditional quilting and I have to say, she's had a remarkable journey since.

Morning Glory block applique and embroidered by Ruth BlanchetThis year my goal is to do more quilting... a lot more quilting. As always, I have lots of quilt ideas floating around in my head, most of them involve applique... and I know I need to get them out. I've already made a start by creating my new Morning Glory block. Originally designed for my BOM Spring Life program, I rearranged it to create a whole new design and of course, I now have this available on my website: Morning Glory design

It is always wonderful starting a new workshop with Elizabeth Barton and for 2018 she has a new one published, The Six Hour Quilt. A little different than her previous workshops, but just as much fun. This is a good basic class but also fun for students of any level!
