    There are many wonderful quilters and designers out there, if you could have a private "lesson" for a day, who would be your choice?
    Me- Kathy McNeil (I already did once and would love to do it again)

    I'm fortunate that I live near Carol Armstrong. Since I have had and would like more one on one with her, she'd be my choice.

    One of our members. Don't recall his name, retired tattoo artist. He took a bunch of different fabrics and blended them all together to make a beautiful scene. I would love to spend the day picking his brain.

    Alex Anderson is a member of the quilt guild I go to. I would love a private lesson with her.

    Then again, Carol Doak and her paper piecing would be fantastic!
    But, wait! Jinny Beyer has an eye for color blending that is fantastic!
    No, wait!......Too many to choose!! Well, I'll be up all night thinking about this one!

    Me too! But Jinny Byer would be a close second running. I wouldn't mind going one on one on a little longarming with Karen McTavish either!
