Two weeks ago I had the pleasure of teaching at the Utah Quilt Festival and and it was oh so much fun!!! The weekend was filled with lots of sewing, laughter, and all around good quilty times. And Barbara and I were just so happy to get to quilt with so many friends again!!
The first class I taught was my Desert Rose pattern ;) This is always a great class to teach and everyone did such an amazing job. I was so impressed with how much got accomplished because this block has a lot of piecing, and I do mean a lot!! There are also lots and lots of points to match up, probably why I like it so much!!
And it was so much fun to see the different fabrics that everyone choose for the blocks!!! Each one is so different and it never ceases to amazing me how much just the fabric can change up the overall look of the design ;) Love it!!! I especially love the dark backgrounds, I am just loving dark backgrounds lately :)
And speaking of finished quilts, one of my favorite things about returning to a retreat is getting to see the finishes from the classes I taught the previous years!!! Lucille has taken a few of my classes, and I was just excatic that she brought back not 1 but 2 finishes for me to see!! So exciting ;) This is her stunning Corkscrew Quilt, isn't is just gorgeous!!! I just think it is absolutely stunning in Batiks and Lucille did a wonderful job with the piecing and the color transition. Just amazing!!!
