My class students rocked it!!! Lancaster a great place to teach and learn!- Come take a Story Class with Mary Lou!

I taught my lettering class and students chose fun words! It was only three hours and when learning this it takes longer until you get the hang of creating your own letters. I love how Kelly above did her Hello." It waill be awesome quilted up!
Jam began the word Paris! What fun for a house on a wall or pillows. I suggested Bonjour and Merci next. Joila! Is really my favorite!
Out of the box blocks was a quilt class we clef Not your Grandmothers blocks. Pretty fun!
You notice these blocks matched a the smile made them even better!
Speaking of smiles this was in our flowerbposie class- she has one down and two to go. Love these - so many flowers so little time!
Above, this lady was from Quebec and she loved the fun of my wool folk art fish. Wait until she adds the beads and stitches. So much fun.
The fish above is mine.
A good start to a happy and colorful fish!
More fun samples from my Workshops.
How about the word "Irish" for fun?
24 students in a couple classes made for a busy day!
Wool of great colors everywhere along with pretty peeled cottons and awesome beads and buttons!
Such nice girls in my classes!
Speaking of fun classes, I am teaching my longer story quilt class in both West Virginia at Cedar Lakes Google and contact Gloria- the price is good and we have a well Lit classroom and rooms just down the hallway. Good provided and we usually do a snack and wine /or soda evening. Fun!
In May/June I will be doing five days of Story Quilts at North Carolina John C. Campbell folk school. 


  1. What a fun class and the fish is a great piece to do in wools and embellish.
    The quilts from Lancaster are amazing.


  2. Looks like the ladies had lots of fun in classes. Some great ideas always seem to show up in your classes.

    Your fish are great! I love working with felted wool. Have fun in your upcoming workshops.

    Are you doing one closer to home this year?

  3. Thank you, Mary Lou, for sharing all the smiles and happy faces of the ladies in your class. Their felt fish look like they're going to be delightful pets - the no fuss, no muss type.

    Hope you have a whole lot of fun at the story quilts class!
