I spent a few days in Annapolis teaching for the Annapolis Quilt Guild. Robin and her sister Nancy were great hostesses. During class we worked on my Flower Vase layering with wonderful textural fabrics and embellishing fibers.
We also visited the Garden of the Gods
On Friday we traveled to the retreat center and set up for the weekend. In the evening I presented a power point presentation about my quilts and then taught my Flowerbed Quilt for two days. To my surprise I awoke to snow on Saturday morning. It snowed about a foot. What wonderful weather to bundle up and sew.
Each student started with one of the twelve blocks. Working with hand dyed wool, velvet and embellishments.
Kathy brought her version of my ‘Sew Your Seeds’ Needlecase to share with me. I love her happy colors.
Many of the participants at the retreat brought house blocks for a charity quilt. Cyndi started piecing them together and shared it at Show and Tell. Some of my students also shared their blocks.
I then traveled to Orange County Quilters Guild in California.
I spent a couple of days in California teaching wool appliqué and embellishment. We worked on one of my pillows.
We finished the day exploring a little embellishment.
I stayed with Karen one of my students from Sisters Oregon. She made me feel very welcome and it was nice to get to know her.
I then traveled across the country for a little fun. I meet Wendy, Melissa, Cathy and Kelly for our weekend trip to Rhinebeck, NY for the ‘Sheep and Wool Festival’.
Can’t wait to share our weekend with all of you.
