I am home from my exciting trip to Michigan...
exhausted from too much quilting fun, too much chatting late at night with my sister (who although she is not at all interested in quilting, was sweet enough to let me talk late into the night about my classes with Bonnie Hunter), and too much driving! I am anxious to get back to work on my two brand new projects from the classes I took, but I do need to spend some time with my family first...can't just pull out the sewing machine right away, can I??!? LOL!
This is the pile of fabrics I had cut for the second day of classes, using the EZ Angle ruler, which thanks to Bonnie, is the only way I am doing HST's from now on!
And here is a photo of Bonnie with me on the second day of classes. I had already been sewing for a few hours and was putting together some blocks for my "Blue Ridge Beauty" quilt which I will likely call something like "Plaid Beauty". I am not sure of the layout I will use for this quilt, but on the table you can see one of the possibilities.
Don't I look happy?!? Besides meeting Bonnie in person, and being inspired by her wonderful lecture, and seeing some of her fabulous quilts, the other great thing is that I cleared out ALL of the old plaids (yes ALL!) from my stash to put into this quilt and am delighted with how much storage room I will have (that I can re-fill with my new purchases!) now that all that old fabric is being sewn into a quilt.
