HAPPY SPRING ! Who ever guessed you would have a happy Snowgirl welcoming you? Hee hee
Isn't it great that we can remember things from our childhood that made us who we are today? Love learning about what makes me tick.
This coming weekend I will be giving two lectures and showing my quilts to the quilters In Tri Cities Washington (Kennewick.) this is 2 & 1/2 hours South of Spokane. Many many talented quilters live there and the show is always wonderful. The show is at the convention center by the Red Lion and it is all day Friday and Saturday. I will be bringing a lot of books and fabric and new MaryLooney pins. Hope to see you there and tell you something about being more creative and Out of the Box! I will have some cow quilts with me too!

This wonderful cow is by Susan Typpi. It is called "Frida Kowhlo" and I think she is beautiful. The cows still keep coming!
I have more cows to put on here but I need better photos. In the meantime, I thought you would enjoy this!
Below I think this is the truth and our purpose.
Below I put this photo on my refrigerator.it should help as I know this lady could be me only with shorter hair.
The little quilt above is by my darling friend Jan from Tulsa who made this for a person who moved (MOOved) Isn't it sweet? Like she is'
Have a lovely day friends!
My class students rocked it!!! Lancaster a great place to teach and learn!- Come take a Story Class with Mary Lou!
I taught my lettering class and students chose fun words! It was only three hours and when learning this it takes longer until you get the hang of creating your own letters. I love how Kelly above did her Hello." It waill be awesome quilted up!
Out of the box blocks was a quilt class we clef Not your Grandmothers blocks. Pretty fun!
Speaking of fun classes, I am teaching my longer story quilt class in both West Virginia at Cedar Lakes Google and contact Gloria- the price is good and we have a well Lit classroom and rooms just down the hallway. Good provided and we usually do a snack and wine /or soda evening. Fun!
In May/June I will be doing five days of Story Quilts at North Carolina John C. Campbell folk school.

The quilt below was fused with many pieces and wonderful floral quilting stitches!
The quilt below from Germany got best color! It has 24000 teeny Swarovski crystals on it and the quilting was just fabulous. It had a lot of painted pieces in it also. Fabulous!
Look at the color switches! Wonderful
Check out all of the hand painting on this and the fabulous quilting!
Below is a quilt by Robbi Eklow
The quilt below was outstanding for so many reasons. Quilting and points and appliqué. I judged the show with two other quilters and it was very tough!
If you missed the Lancaster show you missed a lot!!! My camera blurs out the cards sometimes and I have no record of who did these but I know many of you will recognize these artists! Wonderful shop and glad I got to judge again. I am blessed
