Teacher Spotlight: Maria Shell

Maria Shell is really on a roll! Her quilt Uptown Rail Fence just won a third place prize at the Houston International Quilt Festival, she has an article in the Oct/Nov issue of Quilting Arts magazine, AND she has a new book out! Improv Patchwork: Dynamic Quilts Made With Line and Shape. It is beautifully laid out and full of useful tips.
Maria will teach two classes during the second week of QSDS 2018.  You will be amazed at what you can create with sets of strips and simple pieced shapes.
Whether you are an old hand at this art quilt game or quite new to quiltmaking, bring your sewing machine and spend some quality time learning from a teacher with lots of great ideas.
