Visiting with Weeks Ringle

As Spring Quilt Market closed down in Kansas City, the excitement remained high for the Kansas City Modern Quilt Guild, as well as a few quilters who had the good fortune to stay an extra day, or miss a flight or two. Weeks Ringle stayed an extra day also, just to speak to us and show us some of her fabulous quilts! So, on May 21, a horde of quilters gathered to listen to Weeks.

Weeks allowed her quilts to be passed around!

Her mini quilts were just gorgeous.

At the end, Kansas City Modern Quilt Guild members showed quilts that had been made from a pattern by Weeks and Bill. Weeks loved it and took photos to show Bill.

Having Weeks visit and speak to the guild was fun, inspirational and educational. We loved having her!
