Lizzy House at Philly MQG

The Philly Modern Quilt Guild was thrilled to host Lizzy House about a week ago for a lecture and workshop.  Lizzy's lecture on Friday night focused on her path to designing fabric and the love she cultivated along the way for quilting.  The audience had a wonderful time learning about her story, which was heartfelt, inspirational, and overall quite entertaining.

On Saturday, a group of about 20 quilters returned to our meeting venue to learn to make Lizzy's Meadow Quilt.  It became apparent right away why it is so important to learn to make this quilt from Lizzy herself.  She was a fantastic teacher - very kind and knowledgeable - and she took time to meet with every participant individually to discuss their plans for the quilt.  We even had a chance to get a sneak peak of her upcoming fabric line!

If you have a chance to take a workshop with Lizzy, we highly encourage you to do so!  You are sure to learn something new in a very inviting environment.  See below for some more fun photos from our Lizzy House events.  If the slide show below doesn't work, visit the gallery direct link instead.
