Quilting Among Friends

I promised to share some pictures from Monday's wonderful trunk show at my quilt guild (Little Balkan's Quilt Guild in Pittsburg, KS). Linda Everhart from Among Friends
wowed us with her fabulous use of color and creative designs.

If you are not familiar with Linda, please visit her website . She has developed a unique method for raw edge reverse fusing and machine applique/quilting which she calls Fusique. If you've ever wanted to make a stained glass quilt, for instance, but didn't want to deal with all that bias tape, this might be just what you've been looking for.

Linda has appeared on Simply Quilts and Kaye's Quilting Friends on PBS. You can even watch the latter show on her website. She has traveled internationally sharing her love of quilting with many. Many of her stunning patterns are actually "twofers" as you can create a reverse image version at the same time. You'll see what I mean in the pictures below.

It was a pleasure meeting Linda and hearing about her quilting journey and philosophy of life.

With her permission I'm happy to share some pictures from Monday night's trunk show.
