I finished up cutting the rest of the pieces for my, My Blue Heaven quilt. If you haven’t guessed, Yes….I am making My Blue Heaven in red. It’s been my favorite color for forever so I thought it might be a good choice.
I might have to cut a few more strips as my daughter Kelli was home this weekend and would squeal, “Oh, I don’t have this print.” I’d say grab a strip and gradually my box got a little emptier. That’s okay…it’s all in the fun.
I am cutting and getting ready for Bonnie Hunter from Quiltville to come to IOWA to do a workshop on My Blue Heaven and her Pineapple quilt.
It’s a bit of a trek for me to travel ( about 3-4 hours) but, I am really inspired by Bonnie’s patterns, her scrap system and use of stash fabric…so I thought I would give it a try. My daughter Kelli is coming with so it should be a fun weekend…she’s always a hoot!
We have never been to a retreat. I’ve been to VERY few quilting classes. I’m just not a social bug that way. Any advice from you seasoned retreaters on what I need or don’t need?
