Little Traverse Bay Quilt Guild Class: Intro To Portrait Quilts

I had the opportunity to do a lecture and my Intro to Portraits Quilts class based on my first quilt pattern last week at the Little Traverse Bay Quilt Guild in the Petoskey and Charlevoix MI area. I had several ladies in my class and got photos of most of the projects-one person had to leave early and another person had an arm injury and couldn't sew on her machine. The women were very fun, creative and well organized. These are the great examples of the class projects.
Great pink hair!
Redhead doing a redhead quilt!
Self portrait with a wild background!
This project may become a pillow!

Love the color combinations and the fuchsia hair!
Awesome warm colors and bold outer border fabric!!
Great use of primary colors and fun glasses!
 And this last photo is an example of my quilt that I demoed on Quilting Arts TV Season 13 Episode 1303. If you go to all of us artists have our work available for download. Laurel downloaded my pattern and brought it to class to show be-I'm impressed.
This awesome quilt guild treated me like a queen! I had a great experience and have lots of memories! I was able to visit the local quilt shop called Hearts to Holly in Charlevoix, I traveled to Lower Michigan for the first time and I crosses the Mackinac Bridge for the first time also! The bridge was a rush!!
