But of course, first, I needed to start with visiting a few quilt shops. That would definitely help, right?
Next, I was off to . . .
I make at least on trip to my home town per year - Why is it that I just learned that the Missouri Star Quilt Company was only a drive away from my home town?
I also checked to see if there would be any interesting guild events while I was visiting Iowa. Get this - the Des Moines Area Quilt Guild was hosting 2 lectures by Jacquie Gering while I was visiting! So, for a small guest fee, I got to spend a day being inspired by incredible quilts - and meeting some very nice Des Moines quilters!
Thank you Jacquie, for sharing your story, your amazing quilts, but mostly for motivating me to move on to new ideas and challenges in my quilting life.
And thank you Iowa, for always reminding me of who I am and where I came from.
