Featured Quilter: Mary Ellen

During the month of April 2014, I’m featuring the talented quilters who attended Camelia’s Quilting Retreat.  You will see firsthand the spectacular quilts and other projects completed.  It is amazing how much the ladies accomplish during the four-day quilting retreat!

Mary Ellen has attended my quilting retreats since 2010.  She is my right hand woman and I appreciate her help!  She travels from Maryland to Southwest Virginia for the event.  She spends a considerable amount of time on charity quilts.  You would enjoy her quilting blog: QuiltMouse.
