Teaching in Montana

Thursday, February 19th, 2009

I traveled north to teach in Montana – what an adventure in February! Brrr! My hostess, Karen Vosen picked me up at the airport in Great Falls, and drove me to her home town in Havre, MT. We stopped and saw the sights along the way, which I am sharing in a travel log. The most interesting things I saw were the great big open sky, the wide open prairie of eastern Montana, river ravines, historic Ft. Benton, and two great quilt shops! Ok, here is a peek at the day!

I had the pleasure of teaching the South Bay Quilter’s Guild workshop in Luella’s Quilt Basket¬†classroom. What a great shop! Visit Luella and her staff when you’re in the South Bay area! The shop is easy to find at 1512 Aviation Blvd, Redondo Beach, CA – just watch for the huge quilt blocks painted on the building!
