Sue Nickels Quilt Class

With so much going on around our house I hadn't posted about how excited I was to be taking a quilting class this weekend. Well, the class was so much fun and better than I had anticipated. We learned SO much about machine applique and quilting in general, that my brain hurts after such a long day! LOL!
I have some great pictures of our class and some of the quilts that ou
r teacher, Sue Nickels made and displayed, but I waited too long to get pictures of all the other quilts displayed! There was just so much going on I didn't get around to it.
First, I just want to say that Sue Nickels is an awesome teacher and such a sweet person. If you ever get the chance to meet her or take one of her classes, please don't hesitate, she's fantastic!! Ok, now for some pictures to share with you.

This is the center block from the quilt, Morning Has Broken
The block we practiced our reverse applique

More gorgeous quilts

The detail quilting on this quilt doesn't show
up in my pictures, it is very small stippling stitches
done on her home sewing machine, just awesome!

Wow- those really are gorgeous quilts! How lucky you are to have seen them in person.
PS Do I recognize that bird that you embroidered!?!
