We had a wonderful space for our workshops thanks to the connection that the Program Chairperson has with the local church. She's the pastor there! The workshop was about machine fusible applique - all the ways that I use it in my quilts. I use this bird sampler I designed as our pattern:
I share 7 different techniques, including binding. I joke that it's applique bootcamp, but it really is. By the end of the workshop each quilter knows which settings to use on their machine and which techniques they like the best.
For the nest block, we all shared our brown scraps. They made beautiful bird's nests. We placed all our blocks on the floor to make a "quilt". It looked great, and it was fun.
Plus, I had a wonderful surprise. One of the members, Andrea, also belongs to the Warwick Quilt Guild. She took my workshop there called "Inspiration From Mexican Tiles" in 2011, and she brought the quilt to show me. Yay!
