I think partly it was the fact that we were tired of cabin fever, the snow was gone and we were all ready to have some fun with each other!
Felicia the Slow Quilter showed us her caricature (did I spell that right?) that Sandra (SistahStitchalot) did for her. Of course, she used her own personal design wall to show it off!
The main event at the meeting was a workshop taught by Sandy Hassan to make this beautiful quilt.
It is a crescent moon design that she makes look so easy to do!
tools of the trade
Sandy showed us her secret to sewing the circle to the background without using pins ... just hold it flat with the palm of your hand!
cutting away the background to use for the smaller circle
me, looking all busy and stuff!
It was a wonderful workshop, I can't wait to make my first quilt with this pattern! I did complete a block during the workshop (I cheated and used a circle Sandy had already prepped though!)
Doesn't look as perfect as Sandy's but it's a start!
That bee it for today, sew forth and sew on til later!
