West Virginia Story Quilt Workshop, Button Treasure Jar, Blessings and Plaids
Above, I just love to leave a nice message for my Grandkids or whoever views my quilts. We are blessed to be a blessing. Who are you blessing today? It is such a nice message for all of us and wouldn't the world be a better place if everyone thought this way? See below for info on a great opportunity in West Virginia.
Looking down on the top of just one of my button jars-don't you just love the color and the texture and the feel of buttons?
Here is the treasure jar story quilt hanging in the LaConner Museum.
Terry Chilco, a friend from West Virginia just wrote a nice blurb about the retreat I am doing there soon. If you live close to West Virginia, the price is reasonable and the place is fantastic. Many teachers want to teach there because it is so great. I will be doing an inspiring quilt story class and would love to meet you there. Terry by the way has taken many of my story quilt classes all over the US and is hooked. She is proud I am coming to West Virginia her home State and I can't wait.

My Dad used to go out and get buttons at garage sales for me often. I loved the fact that he tried so hard to find me treasures. I decided to do a girl with a treasure jar and I used the buttons as my treasures with the Bible verse that says "For where your treasure is there will be your heart." I love this because it has good messages and reminds me of my Daddy.
