March 2012 Meeting

Gretchen Abston from Waco, Tx presented the March program of the Brownwood Quilters Guild. She presented a wonderful trunk show and several of her quilts are pictured here.  At the end of the trunk show she did a workshop on a small embroidered wool sewing kit.  Members purchased the kit and Gretchen showed how it all went together.  A very fun and useful project.  In addition to the Tuesday workshop, there was also the option of an additional workshop on the following day.  On Wednesday Gretchen led a workshop on Judy Niemeyer's method of paper piecing and demonstrated the blocks for the Desert Sky pattern.  There were approximately 8 members that attended the paper piecing workshop.  Gretchen did a great job teaching this method and everyone took home a completed Desert Sky block.  She also teaches classes at Tomorrows Quilts in Waco as well as teaching in her home.
