KRQ Meeting - February 9, 2015


Even though many of us were tired from quilting at our retreats, we really enjoyed Donna Young and her Design Wall Quilts.  She shared many of her stories, inspirations, designs, and techniques with us.

  1. Hi girls. You know, I just came across your blog. I loved looking through. I see pictures of myself from my presentation last fall. I could use a double chin removal procedure, ha ha.

    I love all your work. So many inspiring projects... I love that you had Donna Young present to your guild.. She is one talented lady and I admire her work. Did she tell you her secret? She uses a bit of yellow in most all her creations. I wonder if I did that if it would get me any awards!!. Also I was totally impressed with your guest Kim who showed all her gifted quilts. She is one brave lady, and isn't it nice to know that those quilts we all make for one charity are so appreciated!. See you all in a few weeks.
