It was the perfect day to be teaching. How could anyone complain about being in a quilt shop for 4 hours?
Gretchen Gibbons was in the class. If any of you love wool appliqué, you probably know her. She has 2 wonderful books, Pennies From Heaven and Enchanted Garden. She brought her most recent quilt with her to share. It may be a Block of the Month, so I said "sign me up". Check it out. I think it's gorgeous with such an expected setting fabric.
Here's a couple of close ups.
I also finished Mary Marks' latest mystery book, called "Gone But Knot Forgotten". Mary comes up with the most unexpected ideas as a basis for her novels. It was a great read and truly a surprise ending. It's the third book that Martha Rose is the middle aged divorced quilter that is always at the center of a murder and helps to find the killer.
There is no pattern available, BUT, it's available as a video class. The video class is part of a year long class with 12 projects from 12 different teachers, called Quilted Adventure. Head to this site for more info: bitly/CherylLynch
It was filmed with my friend Nancy,in my sunroom, with my iPad. It is divided up into two parts. Also included is a tour of my studio and an interview. I'd love to have all of you as my students. This bag is one of my favorite designs. The class would make a great holiday gift, if someone you know needs a hint!
