I have two fabulous days in the town of Paradise, California (yes, there really is a town called Paradise) with teacher and quilter extroadinaire Cindy Needham. I have studied with Cindy before, and each time I come away inspired, informed, and improved!
Here's just one small example of the work Cindy does on vintage linen:
The class is on machine quilting heirloom feathers and backgrounds - more than anything, I just need a couple of days of retreat - am so looking forward to it! I'll be taking a camera, so will have some things to share, I'm sure.
My work with the Bonnie Hunter mystery hit a wall when I realized I didn't like my colors, after making around 70 units... hmmm, why couldn't I see it sooner????
Well - here's the original colors:
So, back to the drawing board - the reddish brown became a camel brown, and the green became a bright blue...
and now I am much happier to move forward on the mystery ! Wonder what I will find to do with those other squares? Hmmm, charity quilt...
So, better run and pack up my class stuff - see how little I can forget this time!
Happy Happy Quilting,
