Where would we be without teachers! I have been lucky to learn from the best. Top teacher Judy Doenias paid us a visit at Needle Arts in the library on Monday. She is sharing her EPP charm quilt here. I hear a whole new crop of these has been started in her classes.
She promised to demo her 4-patch stack sometime soon. This is made from a single animal print. What fun to play with these variations! The zebras are easy, but can you find the lion eyes? This quilt will be called Lion Eyes...or was it Lyin' Eyes...or maybe Lionize. Great name, great quilt!
Judy as been a major influence in my quilt life. From her I have learned techniques in hand piecing, hand quilting, machine piecing, machine paper piecing, quilt-as-you-go, dimensional bow ties...the list is long. And to top it all...she and her friend Diane Rode Schneck helped me make my beloved Dear Jane quilt!!
