It's a good thing I'm an experienced sewist; I was able to catch up really fast. The gals at the SDMQG are super nice and actually apologized!
I ended up having a great time and meeting some wonderful people. The "boss" of the volunteers at Quiltcon was even there, but Colleen is a member of my MQG, The Temecula Valley MQG. I worked for her for 4 days, and I loved the experience.
At the workshop, we only constructed a test block, but we were given the foundation of making the entire Meadow Quilt. This quilt is made using scissors, no rotary cutting! That alone makes it unique.
At the end of the class, Lizzy House offered to sign our test blocks. I'm going to use this on the quilt back and I think it will be a nice touch.
This is a shot of her completed quilt. She's taught this workshop more than 80 times, all over the world
All the members of the workshop, with their blocks. This is the very first quilt workshop/class I've ever taken.
The drive home took 2 hours and 15 minutes, traffic, traffic, traffic.
May your bobbins always be full,
