Michelle is our brave PMQG Secretary and does all the thankless work of recording what happens at our events. Usually, she usually writes down all the information on a spotlight for me but I'm going to do my best to do the post without her help!
She started her spotlight by telling us she's not really a quilter but a crafter. Not true, I say! She just started out as a crafter. Here was her first needlework:
After that, Michelle made lots of beautiful jewelry:
For a while she stayed with a friend in Florida and they joined a group of quilters down there who helped her make her first quilt.
This was her first mug rug that was a little quilt.
She's been a member of PMQG for about a year and a half and the first challenge she did was the monochromatic challenge.
The back even has applique on it!
Some mug rugs from swaps she participated in.
A cute little drawstring pouch:
She then made hot/cold packs and tried to sell them at craft shows.
A really adorable quilt top.
Another tote, but made with a waterproof lining.
Another PMQG challenge. We were given square pillows to cover and Michelle turned hers into a triangle!
An adorable Santa wreath made from a hat!
Samples from learning free motion quilting last year.
Seasonal decorations made from picture frames.
A clever advent calendar made from playing cards and picture frames.
Michelle showed us her drawing abilities with this sketch she made in DisneyWorld.
A Mondo bag that Michelle has in progress.
A needle-book that she made one for herself and another for a PMQG swap.
Her most recent quilt top in progress made with Central Park fabric.
Pieces from the Kona Solids Challenge that Michelle has taken apart to reassemble differently.
And a Christmas wreath block using the same lil twister ruler she used for her first quilt.
Thank you Michelle for sharing your creativity with us!
