Hoochy Mama!

Thumb Butte Quilters' Guild had Mary Lou Weidman speak at the meeting yesterday.
This is a small portion of one of her story quilts. Her story quilts were loaded with delightful details. You don't quickly walk away from her quilts. They invite you to enjoy them for a long time.

She has a book out to help quilters think of ideas for their own story quilts.

After the meeting I went to her Hoochy Mama! class. Today was Flower Power. This is a picture of the class's flower garden. Mary Lou was a delightful teacher.

Both classes were great, low stress classes! There was no need to worry about perfect points or matching seams. Sally's and Judith's blue birds were fabulous! I wish I'd gotten pictures of their blue birds and cone flower blocks.
