Ana Buzzalino, of Calgary, was the February guest lecturer and instructor to the Edmonton & District Quilters' Guild. I asked her how many students had taken this same Painting of Fabrics class with the pear as subject matter...she stated 300. How to make mine distinguishable in the ranks of many. First - finish it. Quilted, binding and label on. I love the techniques taught and would highly highly recommend her to come to your guild. She has an impressive trunk show and her teaching style is non rushed while being very instructive. We all came away with our painted pear.
