|Sue Nickels: Day 2 Demo|
It was nice to spend time with traditional quilters and a traditional teacher as their craftsmanship is so amazing. I have to say I was a little discouraged at the end of the machine quilting workshop(something else to work on....:) and Sue immediately gave all of us a pep talk. I think the biggest thing I took away is that machine quilting is a learned skill.
I will take her advice on the the 3 P's she coached us with : patience, perseverance and practice.
I can't imagine drawing a design and then quilting it, but you never know. I never plan that much when I quilt. But I was very happy to gain a little knowledge in machine quilting and happy as can be with Sue as a teacher. If you ever have the opportunity, don't hesitate to take her workshops!
Wonder how many years I will need to work on this skill:).
