    I've seen this guy's stuff before and will be eternally amazed. Especially as he works in miniature for the most part. I do believe he uses snipped off dog ears in his quilting! His work is so-o-o tiny, involved, and precise. Breathtaking!

    I saw a pattern of his in a magazine about 2 years ago. Amazing work. I'm not sure I would have the patience.

    He and his wife did a program and a workshop at my guild. He started with quilting with the book: Log Cabin with a Twist and kept making them smaller and smaller. He and his wife are fantastic people.
    Got fabric?

    What is the use?? His quilts (I actually THOUGHT they were paintings at first) are actually drop dead gorgeous. Maybe I should EMPTY my sewing room and choose another hobby......

    He is amazing and wonderful teacher. Both he and his wife have taught at the Lancaster Quilt Show. I think she does FMQ. His classes are worth the time and cost.

    I made one of his patterns. If you've done pp before it's just the same but smaller pieces. I do suggest you use a nonwoven lightweight interfacing for your foundation tho, then you won't need to remove it. I didn't, used paper and it took an hour to pick the paper out from each 6" block. His patterns are amazing, I just love the one I made.

    I took his drafting class in Columbus OH really interesting. It's amazing the different designs that came out. I'm working on mine but it isn't done yet.
