I had the opportunity last night to attend a lecture and trunk show by Jody Barrows. What an in inspiring night! Jody, besides being renowned for her Square in a Square technique, is such a wonderful story teller. Listening to her tell the tales from her family heritage and being able to see a ton of her gorgeous quilts was a night I'll not soon forget! If you ever get the chance to attend one of her lectures, DO IT! Trust me - you won't be disappointed.
