A Story Quilt Student Shares her finished product!

It is always so wonderful to see what a finished story quilt looks like from one of my workshops. I think this is an amazing example of what someone can accomplish/
Today I got the nicest letter about this quilt and thought I would share it with you. It says:
Mary Lou,I wanted to thank you for the wonderful class that you taught at the Clark County Quilt Guild in September. It was great fun making the star blocks and also using your tips and Hoochy Mama concepts in the design of the Harry Potter quilt image that I am including with this e-mail. The non-star blocks were made by members of a book and quilt group. The star blocks were made by Sharry O., the CCQ president and myself. In all we made star twenty blocks, but decided to not include them all in this quilt. A couple of those not included looked like spinning pinwheels. The quilt is 50 inches wide by 70 inches high and will be auctioned off to benefit the Medical Teams International (formerly Northwest Medical Teams).Others from the class are still working on their quilts and the group just recently had a get together at one of the local firehouses to continue the work on the quilts.Thanks again for such a wonderful time.cathy erickson
This totally made my week. I hope you enjoyed seeing this wonderful quilt too!

What a great quilt, I love the sorting hat and the snowy owl, I can't recall her name. They are wonderful, both pieced and applique.

What a wonderful gesture to auction it off for health care.

Take a bow ladies,
