    If you could spend one day with any quilter or someone who is relevant to the quilting world Who would it be? and why?
    I am currently facinated with Paula Nadelsterns Kaleidoscope Quilts , and would love to spend a day "seeing" what she "see's" in fabrics.

    Sharon Schamber! She has more tricks up her sleeve than anyone I've seen before plus she's a great teacher and I'd love to spend time with her to learn easier ways to do things that would improve the final look of my work.

    My best friend that I had to move away from. Job transfer. Gotta go where the work is these days. We still have internet and phone but it isn't the same.

    While I've admittedly drunk the Sharon Schamber's KoolAid, I did spend almost a year channeling Paula:
    http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-148964-1.htm#4085226

    Now, though, if I had a blissfully free rare day to do nothing but learn, I think I'd choose Diane Gaudynski or Leah Day because I really, really would want to focus on my FMQ.

    I do well in intensive, crammed-full-of-information one-on-one sessions.
    I mean, I wouldn't have to share "my one day" with someone else, would I?

    I'm torn between Karen McTavish - I just love her quilting. Or My MIL, she taught me how to quilt. I would love to show her how I have improved and now I could show her a thing or two. I miss her, she passed away 4 1/2 yrs ago.

    My mom. She begged me to take time to sew with her. Now that I have time, she can only watch from Heaven. She's been gone since 2008. :(

    My Mother quilted with her sisters all my life but I was never interested. About 10 yrs ago I got the bug but sadly my Mom passed away before I got my first quilt finished. I would love to be able to spend a day with her and see how amazed she would be that I am so devoted to quilting. I know that can't happen so my second choice would be Charisma..her LAQ is sooo amazing!

    My grandmother. She was going to teach me to hand quilt as soon as I finished the piecing. Unfortunatly, she passed before I got it done. It was several years before I was able to even look at the quilt top again. I did finally hand quilt it, my 1st, and felt her presence the whole time. I still miss that woman!

    I would love one more day of quilting with my mother. We spent many hours quilting together. I miss her, she's been gone since 1998.

    I actually had two of those "One Days" this year. Bonnie Hunter and Joe Cunningham. Bonnie is so full of energy and I love her scrappy quilts. Her website is awesome and so is her blog. Joe is an art quilter.... abstract artist. He is also an entertainer. I took his hand quilting class just to say I had. I will never be able to hand quilt like he does but at least I know how he does it. :-)
