One of the biggest perks to teaching is the lifetime friends that one makes. years ago, Lois Podonly came to take a StoryQuilt class from me and she has ended up being a master story teller and creative quiltmaker. Now Lois has taken classes from nearly everyone and she does fabulous quilts in all styles and types but it is her Story Quilts that make her who she is as a quilter (in my opinion). This quilt took first place at the Tucson quilt show. It is about her husband Gary who is very fun, a Doctor and an avid bike rider and skier. When he used to date her he brought her pickled and he loves chocolate covered peanut m &m's. This quilt is full of color, happiness, creativity, story telling and loads of exciting and fun embellishments. If you click on the photo you can see these things up close. Lois can put together hoochy mama blocks like nobody's business. It is so much fun to see a quilt like this. I should also mention that Lois has a large beautiful house with wonderful artwork and her many Story quilts and other quilts she has collected pepper the walls along with the paintings, wood work, clay and other wonderful items she has. I hope you enjoy this. I thought it was a great quilt to share.

What a great story quilt and thanks for sharing it with you. One day I'll get mine done. This working full time just is a pain sometimes! But it's needed to pain the bills and buy fabric and other fun stuff.
