Margaret Solomon Gunn has sewn everything from heirloom smocked dresses to curtains, with a current love of hand-piecing and appliqué. She made her first quilt while in college studying to be an engineer. Fifteen years later, she traded in the career to stay at home, raise her children, and realized that her love of quilting could be fostered at the same time and bought herself a longarm to start a business, Mainely Quilts of Love. Known for her often intricate secondary patterns and use of templates, Margaret is a freemotion quilter with many national awards and published articles to her credit. www.QuiltsofLove.blogspot.com

December 2, 2017
The Year of the Birds!  We hope you all had a relaxing, happy Thanksgiving.  We're noticing a 'bird' theme to a number of the classes offered at MQX New England this spring. We're not sure how that happened but these birds sure are really pretty and oh so ...
