As many of you know, we c0-sponsored a Cotton Theory Workshop last weekend with Vicki Madigan of Catalyst Career Group. As I mentioned in my newsletter last week, this method is pretty labor intensive, but you do get a really neat result. Here is my finished runner:
Yes, I know, it's hard to believe I actually finished something. It took me quite a while to get it done, but I knew if it went into the UFO pile (read that MOUNTAIN), it would never emerge again. I used Kansas Troubles fabrics from my stash, and they look so nice in my house, that I really wanted to finish this. I am pretty pleased with the result (from a galloping horse, anyway).
Here are some pictures from the retreat with all the happy quilters and their partially finished blocks:
The Whole Group - Teacher, Margy Weber is in the front row on the right. As you can see, some people got farther than others. There were sure some beautiful colors!
A few close-ups - Sorry if some are a little hard to see.
Vicki Madigan - having fun!
Blue & Whites - very pretty
Gotta Love the Patriotics!
Check out the purple boa - we all got one! Now that made the workshop worth attending!
