When I was asked by a quilter friend if I wanted to attend a 4 day workshop with artist  Ann MYHRE author of . "QUILT AS INSPIRED."  I was ecstatic. I've been around Ann Ann and her beautiful creations and yes, I wanted to be inspired.
I love the traditional quilts and earthy colors of nature.  I signed up for the retreat with 11 other students not really having a clue as to what to expect.  I know Ann from her beautiful colors quilting technique with paint, sequins beads,handmade application pieces throughout the piece of art.  This way of art quilt is very out of the box for me.   I decided I was going to be spontaneous and free spirited with my piece of organic sewing.
After a few pep talks from Ann I was ready and excited !  I sat at my machine and my quilting style and openness went on a creative roller coaster.  
With Ann's patience, I was successful during the retreat!   I came home feeling positive that I would see quilting in a new light.  I now have an open and willing heart to enjoy it again and again.  I still love the traditional quilting process, but am feeling grateful for having the opportunity to work with art quilt experience.
I'm looking forward to the next quilt retreat hosted by QUILT AS INSPIRED.   I was quite inspired by Ann and so appreciate her warmth, compassion, and kindness!

Ann Myhre

The very first QAI Retreat, 2017


I attended Ann's Quilt as Inspired Retreat this weekend and was blown away!  This was hands down THE BEST retreat I have ever taken. Ann provided individual attention and instruction to each participant throughout the weekend.  Her quilts are stunning and she is beyond inspiring.  In these few days I learned free motion machine quilting, how to use paint and other media on textiles, updated techniques for applique, and so much more.  It was a blast!  The format allowed me to push myself and create as I have been wanting to for a long time.  Ann is talented, generous, and a wealth of knowledge.  I want to do it again!
