Nancy Brown Class

I stumbled on a planned class for a local guild a couple of weeks ago and was blessed that they still had an opening. Nancy Brown had the quilt, "Oh, my", showing at PQIF in 2004 and I think it became my most favorite all time quilt. Pictorial quilts have not been my favorites always but her quilts are a definite cut above! She is teaching at Empty Spools quilt retreat at the end of June this year. I'm very tempted to try to go. She's an excellent and fun instructor.

Yesterday's class was wonderful. We learned her applique technique and had instruction in foundation piecing a background as well as making a pattern from photographs of our own animals or wild animals. Most of the day was spent appliqueing (is that how you spell that?) the pattern she gave us of a giraffe. I'm slow so I only got 5 spots sewn onto her neck.

I'll show more pictures of her quilt pictures in another post. It was a very fun day. Almond Country Quilt Guild knows how to host a wonderful class!


  1. wow, her stuff is fabulous. I went to her site and saw her quilts. I love the dog quilt she made. The giraffe is going to be so cute.

  2. The giraffe is very cute. I've seen her patterns and was curious about them...glad to hear you liked her class.

  3. sounds like a really neat class!

  4. These pictorial quilts are super! So life like! It sounds like it was a very fun and informative class. The Giraffe is going to be really cute! :0)
